Club Profile

The Oamaru Bridge Club is located in the centre of Oamaru. In 1962 local bridge players wanted more than the rubber bridge played at home and decided to form the Oamaru Bridge Club. Many returned servicemen had experienced the game overseas.

The club started off with 41 members and in 1963 regular duplicate bridge was underway in Oamaru.

We became affiliated to the New Zealand Bridge Association in 1964. As the membership increased, the club had a need for its own home. Over the years several buildings were used and in 1980 the Gospel Hall was purchased and adapted to be able to play bridge in one room. Many volunteer hours were put in to achieve this. The club has been in this building since and is proud of this achievement.

At present we have 185 members. Our members coming from as far as: The Hakataramea Valley, Kurow, Waimate and Tokarahi and Palmerston. The club is strong and full of confidence for the future. This could only be done with the help of many volunteers.

Subscription is $ 80.00.
Non-Home members $ 57.00.
Table money is $ 3.00.

We have 2 divisions:

Bronze divisionplays on Monday at 7.15 pm.
Silver divisionplays on Tuesday at 7.15 pm.

On Thursday at 7.15 pm both divisions can play with some competitions that require a bronze/silver player combination.

Friday afternoon at 1.15 pm is for a social game of bridge in a relaxed atmosphere.

Visitors are always welcome, except on evenings that we have a teams competition. We have a fixed number of tables and no room to accept visitors during that night.

Please check the program to see what kind of competition there is on a certain day.

Please be seated 10 minutes before play has been scheduled to start so we can set up the room.
