Next Committee Meeting

20th June, 10.00am

 

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.

WORLD-WIDE BRIDGE CONTEST SATURDAY 6 JUNE

Once again, the Buchanan is participating in the WORLD-WIDE BRIDGE CONTEST where players have a chance to compete against other pairs from all over the world – a rare opportunity indeed. It is scored using the ECatsBridge system, so you can check online exactly how you fared on the night. Every player will receive a booklet with expert commentary at the end of play.

It is also a fun event – the £8 entry fee includes a glass of wine and canapés.

This competition is open to all, but we would like to know how many we are expecting, so please use Online Entry to let us know that you are coming. See you on Saturday 6 June at 7.00pm!

Ricky's Tournament

Please note that with effect from 4 June until 27 August Ricky’s improvers’ tournament will take place each Thursday instead of Tuesday (subject to any further notice). There will therefore be no tournament on 2 June.

Subscriptions are due now. You can download the subscription form from here.
