Te Anau Bridge Club        

 An affiliated member of Otago Southland Regional Bridge

Club Profile

The Te Anau Bridge Club is located in the centre of Te Anau on State Highway 94.

In the late 1960’s local bridge players wanted more than the rubber bridge played at home and decided to form a Contract Bridge Club. Mrs Cit Excell was duly elected the club’s first president. Our current president is Mrs Margaret Hughes.

We became affiliated to the New Zealand Bridge Association in September 1970 and currently we have about 60 members.
