Club Profile

The Wanaka Bridge Club was formed in 1977 and is affiliated to NZ Bridge. We are well-known for our friendly atmosphere and have a steady membership of about 180. All hands are randomly machine dealt, and scored using the NZ Bridge Scorer programme.

We hold four regular weekly playing sessions: Monday 7.00pm (Silver Division); Wednesday 7.00pm (Bronze Division); Friday 1pm (social play for all); and (February-November) on Tuesdays at 11.15am (casual session for all abilities, bring your lunch). See the 2024 Programme for further details.


We have two annual tournaments, in April (Open 5A) and September (Intermediate/Junior 5B). See the Tournaments page for further details.


Beginner classes are held for those new to the game, and improver classes for those with a year or two of experience seeking to take their play to the next level.
