The Buchanan Bridge Club is a fully licensed club with a bar.

From May 14th, our regular tournament on a Tuesday evening will be changing its format.
This new supported tournament will continue to serve to bridge the gap between classes and the main Club Tournaments on Monday and Wednesday evenings but now there will also be experienced players on hand to guide those who might require assistance during bidding and play.
The evening is open to all those attending classes in the Buchanan and to Club members who enjoy and feel comfortable playing in a more relaxed and less competitive environment.
Play will start at 7.00pm.
For Divisions 3, 4, 5 and players wanting a fun team game.
A friendly teams of four for those wanting to practice for future league matches, or just wanting a fun evening of bridge.
No pressure. No fear.
