Director Reference Guides


Director Reference Guides


The following quick reference guides have been developed to assist club directors to make accurate rulings at the table. 

They cover the common infractions encountered at club sessions and are presented in a flow chart format.

They can be downloaded, printed and laminated to be used as a resource in the club.

The charts are based on the 2017 Laws of Duplicate Bridge.
