John Manning

We are very sad to report that Dr John Manning, author of the manual which many recognise as the authoritative work on duplicate bridge movements, has died at the age of 73.

A distinguished statistician, Dr Manning developed the theory of arrow-switching in pairs events. He also served as a Committee Member in the County Bridge Associations of Northamptonshire and Sussex, and was presented with the Dimmie Fleming award for services to bridge in 1994.

Our deepest sympathy goes to John Manning's wife, Eileen, and their family
