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.

Jimmy Collins

We regret to announce the death of Jimmy Collins. Jimmy had been a club member for many years although had not attended for some time due to illness. Our condolences go to Jimmy's family and friends. Funeral details will be given here when available.

Maureen Henderson

We regret to announce that Maureen Henderson has passed away. Maureen had been a club member for many years, served on the committee and played for Setayro. Our condolences go to Maureen's family and friends. Funeral Mass on Monday, 29th January at 9.30am, followed by an interment at Langfaulds Cemetery arriving 11am. All family and friends welcome. Family flowers only please.

Mondays in January 2018

The sharp-eyed will have noticed that there is a discrepancy between the schedule of play listed on the website and in the Club Diary. This is to confirm that the schedule on the website is the correct one,  viz. Match Point Monday on the 8th and 22nd January and the Lounge Aggregate/First Floor Improvers Aggregate/Top Floor Match Point combination on the 15th and 29th.

New Saturday Afternoon Tournament

The Buchanan holds a Saturday afternoon bridge tournament on the third Saturday of each month. The next event will be held on Saturday 17th February 2018 starting at 1.00pm. This is an open event and all bridge players are welcome to attend. There will be no need for visitors to sign in.

The President and committee look forward to welcoming as many members and visitors as possible.

Saturday Bridge

The next Saturday evening tournament will be on Saturday 3rd February 2018 at 7.00pm.

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 7th September 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 below (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.
