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.
