Next Committee Meeting

2nd June

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.

Bruce Young

We regret to announce that Bruce Young has passed away. Bruce had been a member of the club for many years and will be sorely missed. Our condolences go to Janette, his family and friends. The funeral will be held at Clydebank crematorium on Wednesday 2nd May at 1.30pm.

The next scheduled Saturday evening tournament on Saturday 5th May 2018 has been cancelled.

Both are open events and all bridge players are welcome to attend. There is no need for visitors to sign in.

The Buchanan offers tuition at five levels -

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

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.
