Biggar Bridge Club General Information
Biggar Bridge Club General Information

The purpose of the site is two fold.  Firstly to provide a convenient point of contact and information for existing members and secondly to spread the word to the larger community that Bridge is alive and well in Upper Clydesdale. 

Founded in 1997, the club has a membership of around 100 coming from Biggar and many places in surrounding areas. The club moved to the upper floor of the Biggar Business Park in June 2012, where it enjoys modern comfortable accommodation comprising a main playing room for up to 9 tables, a small side room used for small groups, classes and committee meetings plus a well equipped kitchen and toilets. 

The club runs regular weekly sessions in the evening (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday) and afternoon (Monday and Friday). Classes based on the Scottish Bridge Union Curriculum are held for beginners and those who want to just brush up their Bridge each year; these run from September through to April. In addition the club runs two league teams, "Biggar" and "Tinto" in the Lanarkshire Bridge Association; the teams are currently competing in the first and second divisions respectively. Other activities include participation in periodic national simultaneous pairs competitions and occasional workshops for more experienced members.

The picture shows the club's main playing room.
