BridgePal Scoring System

Captain Ravi Kumar Manian wrote to us in January 2023: "I live in Coonoor, a small hill station in Southern India. I started using BridgePal as our scoring device in early 2022, for our tournaments. We usually have 6 to 7 tables and I use it as Bridgemates along with ACBLScore. I must compliment all of you at BridgePal for the flawless way it has worked so far. A wonderful, easy and inexpensive alternate solution to using Bridgemates. Thanks a ton team BridgePal".
Bridge in Coonoor is an article about Capt Manian, written in 2021 just before they started using BridgePal.
There is also a results website.

What is a hill station in India?

"24 happy bunnies" - From Bernard Magee bridge break run by Gwen Beattie in Inn on the Prom, BridgePal/ BridgeScore, St Annes, 18-20 March 2024
More fans this week I now have 8 requests for BridgePal info!




From Gwen Beattie - "36 happy bunnies" - Gwen Beattie Bridge Breaks,
Inn on the Prom, St Annes, March 2024

This is the 2nd event we have used BridgePal. 9 tables with players from Lancashire, Cheshire, Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Scotland and the Manchester area. None of them had used BridgePals before, although most had used BridgeMates. They needed little or no training... the scoring was pretty much self-explanatory.

Several guests asked me for details about BridgePal as their clubs are also having issues with Bridg...te degradation in varying degrees but the general consensus was that this is definitely the way to go.




From Gwen Beattie - "28 happy bunnies" - Very well received by all players! This particular group is from the U3A (University of the 3rd Age); they come twice a year to the same hotel Inn on the Prom in St Annes for a bridge break, have been doing for the last 10 years! I refer to them as 'Shirley's Bridgers' (Shirley is the organiser). I just go in and run the bridge for them.
There were only 7 tables this time so I used 7 Amazon Fire 7-inch tablets. I have 3 old Android phones with BridgePal installed that I took as back-up but didn't need them.

I have another group (not U3A, from clubs all over the north-west) coming early March and there'll be up to 9 tables then, so I'll be ordering another couple of Amazon Fire tablets (re-furbished from E-bay, about 38 GBP each).
