Welcome to the Bermuda Bridge Club Website
We are a members' club and the principal bridge club on our beautiful island. We run an open, stratified duplicate game on Monday afternoon and evening, Wednesday morning, Thursday evening and Friday afternoon.
The Summer Party "with the Decade Busters" took place on Friday 26th June 2015. A lovely evening was had by all. We had 8 Decade Busters at the party this year: Eddie, Gina, Alan, Annelies, Kathy, Magda, Diana and Geoff, spanning over a range of decades!
World Wide Bridge Contest Saturday 6th June
Well done to Annelies Scheland and Heather Woolf who came 13th in the World in the Saturday afternoon game, at the Bermuda Bridge Club!
The 2015 Sectional Tournament was held the weekend of June 12 – 15. The beautiful summer weather, coupled with the Heroes Day holiday on Monday contributed to slightly fewer tables than last year, however all who played had a great time. The tournament was skillfully directed by Bermuda’s own Jack Rhind, who kept everything running smoothly, and on time. Many thanks, Jack for your hard work! Click here for the list of winners.
All sessions were very competitive, with a number of remarkable performances by the winners. Diana Diel and Pat Siddle kicked off the tournament in fine fashion in the Friday afternoon single-session competition with a 61.9% game. Jane Smith and Alan Douglas improved on this in the Friday night, first of two sessions contest, posting a 62.0% game.
The first Youth Bridge Event took place at the club on Thursday Afternoon 4th June. 12 Saltus students participated, three tables with Peter Donnellan as the director. The plan was to run 5 rounds of 3 boards from 1:15pm to 4pm. However, we started at 1:30pm, and play was a little slower than expected, so we ended at 4pm with 12 boards completed.
There was a tie for first place, and the winners were Gianluca Cacace with Tyler Irby and Blair Blakeney with Kaya Vogler (same sequence as picture below). Congratulations to the winners.
All the students were very enthusiastic, and enjoyed being at the club. Several of the students asked when they might come down to play, and we were encouraging them to come on a Tuesday. If you see any students at the club, please make them feel welcome, and offer them assistance.
