Welcome to Buchanan Bridge Club

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 thirty-two 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.

New Event - Teams of Four

See the News Page for information on this new event.

Thursday Afternoon Tournament - Summer Recess

The Thursday Afternoon Tournament is taking a few weeks off but will be back for the usual mix of cakes, chat and bridge from Thursday 13 September. See you then - all welcome!

Saturday Tournaments
The Saturday afternoon tournament will restart in September but as the club is participating in Doors Open Day, the date for that month will be 22nd September. Thereafter it will be on the third Saturday of the month. Note that play will start at 1.30pm.

The next Saturday evening tournament will be on 1st September 2018 at 7.00pm.

Both are open events and all bridge players are welcome to attend. There is no need for visitors to sign in.
There is no standby but any member looking for a partner should use the Find a Partner facility.

Visitors to the Buchanan

Visitors to the club are very welcome, and our stand-by system means that they are guaranteed a game even if they do not come with a partner (not Saturdays). Visitors must be signed in by a member, but this does not have to be arranged in advance - just turn up on the night and a member will sign you in. Visitors may be signed in a total of six times in any club year before they are expected to join.

You may also apply for a ten week temporary membership that allows access to the cardrooms on the club nights. Use the Contact Us page to request information.
