Never Played Bridge?

If you have not played bridge before or are a new or returning player looking for a classroom experience we suggest you attend one of our classes.

We have a lot of games and sections with games that cater to players with limited Masterpoints.

If you're a new player, or just new to Duplicate Bridge, we think you'll enjoy the following games:

Fewer than 200 Masterpoints

Alpine Bridge Club

Players with fewer than 200 masterpoints start 1/2 hour before the Open game. Pre-dealt hands and hand records with analysis are provided. A light lunch is provided prior to the game.
