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 190. All hands are randomly machine dealt, and scored using the NZ Bridge Scorer programme.
We hold four regular weekly playing sessions: Monday 7pm (Silver Division); Wednesday 7pm (Bronze Division); Friday 1pm (social play for all); and (from February 12th) on Tuesdays at 11am. The Tuesday format is similar to Fridays but is aimed at new and beginning players, and those seeking a social daytime session in a less competitive environment. Bring your own lunch.
We run two annual tournaments, on 24th April (Open) and 11th September (Intermediate/Junior).
We also run beginner classes for those new to the game, and intermediate classes for those with a year or two of experience seeking to take their play to the next level. Class dates and formats for 2021 will be announced here as soon as we have finalised our teaching timetable.
**** Please note our Club Policy: If you are unwell, have a cold or are coughing - we would appreciate it if you would respect our membership, & stay away until you are fully recovered.
