Avoiding problems at the table

Next Committee Meeting
13th September, 9.30am


The Buchanan has been the home of bridge in Glasgow since 1932.
The club is in a 19th century listed building and yet has all the benefits of technology with Duplimate boards, computer scoring, Bridgemates on all tables, etc.  Up to 32 tables in play can be accommodated over the three floors of the building.
The Buchanan Bridge Club is a fully licensed club with a bar and table service whilst you play.

Bridge Classes

The Buchanan offers tuition at five levels -

  • Beginners
  • Intermediate 1
  • Intermediate 2
  • Improvers
  • Advanced

The classes mainly run on Thursday evenings at 7.00pm and last about three hours. The course year will start on 4th September. For full information see Classes in the menu.


Following in the wake of the Commonwealth Games, the Commonwealth Nations Bridge Championship (CNBC) is bringing some of the world's finest bridge players to Glasgow.

Running alongside the main event, the Trans-National Teams on Friday 12th and Saturday 13th September are open to all, and the organisers are still looking for entries. This is a Swiss Teams which will also feature some of the teams knocked out from the main competition, so a real opportunity to play against the best. PLUS all competitors get free entry to an Open Pairs tournament on Sunday 14th.  Team entry costs £400 (or £100 per player) which seems a lot of money but you'll get three days of top-quality bridge!

Any Teams-of-4 interested, please email Fiona Greenwood to register an entry by mid-August.

Bronze Challenge

Are you a Learner, Beginner or Improver?
If so, this new competition is just for you: The Bronze Challenge is a Simultaneous Pairs competition with a difference: Only players of the lower master point rankings (Novices, Club/Local/District Masters and Masters, the so-called "Bronze" category) will be allowed to enter, and in addition your master point number has to be above 10000. This ensures that only fairly recent "recruits" to the game take part - and we even want to include those who don't yet belong to the SBU, such as learners, those attending classes or recent "graduates".
This competition is played in the last week of August throughout the West District, and the Buchanan heat will be on Tuesday 26 August. Please enter on the Club notice board or use Online Entry.

Saturday Tournament

The next Saturday tournament will be on the 6th September at 7.00pm.
