As bridge movements are defined, they are schedules of progression for players as individuals, as teams, and as pairs, indicating the seat to be occupied and the boards to be played by each player, team, or pair at each round. Since the combination is so numerous, movements have been created for certain numbers of players, teams, or pairs as well as for a certain number of boards to be played.

Many of these presentations have been linked to other Internet sources and credit is given to those bridge players, who have taken not only the opportunity but also made the effort to present this information to their fellow bridge players on the Internet. We urge the bridge student to seek out these other sources. For any and all other purposes these web pages serve only as a list and as a compilation of bridge movements for the convenience of the bridge player.

We have attempted to present as many of these numerous combinations as possible, but to cover all movements would be almost impossible. Please bear with us, if we do not have the combination you seek.

Rover Movement - This is a method of handling a half table in a Mitchell Movement. The Rover is an alternative in the Phantom pair and the Bump Mitchell. The Rover pair may play in either direction, but North-South is preferable because the movement is easier to administer with a North-South sit-out. The Rover pair is assigned a number, one higher than the number of full tables in play. After sitting out the first round the Rover pair enters the game by replacing one of the pairs playing in their direction. After playing the round at that table, the Rover pair moves to another table, usually skipping a table up the line.
