Wanaka Bridge Club        

 An affiliated member of Otago Southland Regional Bridge

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 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. See the 2021 Programme for further details.

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


We also run beginner classes 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.


All Playing Sessions Cancelled

All Wanaka Bridge Club playing sessions are cancelled until at least the end of the current Level 4 lockdown. A decision on when to resume play will be based on advice from NZ Bridge.
