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 computer-dealt boards, 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.

JK McDonald Individual

Following a poor turnout on 30th January, the JK McDonald Individual has been rescheduled to Wednesday 20th March. Most League matches will have been played by this date so we hope that this new date will be helpful in attracting a strong field of members looking to win a trophy before the AGM!

Bridge Classes

The Buchanan offers tuition at five levels -

  • Beginners
  • Intermediate 1
  • Intermediate 2
  • Refreshers
  • Advanced

 

 

   

Bridge is enjoyable at all levels - for beginners and experts alike. It's mentally stimulating and for many an activity for life.

The classes run on Thursday evenings at 7.00pm and last about three hours. All courses restarted on 6th September 2018 but you can still join. For full information including costs see Classes in the menu.

Come along to the club about 6.45pm on a Thursday and meet the teachers. You can download an application form here (either for Beginners/Intermediate 1/Intermediate 2 or Refreshers/Advanced).

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.
