Spade Heart  Diamond Club
Welcome to Carlton Bridge Club

At the Carlton, we pride ourselves on welcoming all levels of players. Visitors can join any of our Tournaments and we will try to find a partner if needed. Our custom-built bridge centre provides excellent playing and teaching facilities. Tournaments are scored using interactive technology and results are displayed promptly. Our catering is second to none with home baking, soup and light lunches available.

We are located just to the North of Edinburgh city centre.

Details of the regular tournaments are available here.  We offer classes on five days each week - details here.

ED Swiss Pairs Sunday 18th November

ED Swiss Pairs Sunday 18th November Carlton

Swiss is a popular formula.  After a random draw in the first round,
subsequent rounds match pairs on similar scores so you will be playing pairs
dong as well (or badly) as you!
This is a red-pointed event with points for every game won or drawn. In
addition, there are generous prizes for Gold, Silver and Bronze players.

Tuesday Evening Bronze

The Tuesday evening Bronze Pairs will not run Tuesday 16th October due to Harrower Cup.

The Bronze Pairs tournament will alternate with the Harrower Cup. A full list of dates will be uploaded when numbers of teams are known.

Wednesday Evenings from 19 September

As there has been little appetite for a Teams event and even less interest in cross-imping we are reverting to an Aggregate Tournament on Wednesday evenings. This will be subject to having at least four tables with no half table. The Director will decide if a Howell is more appropiate.
