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. At present we are without a Steward and our catering is limited  but our intention is to regain our crown - providing catering which 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.

The Carlton Bridge Club is looking to appoint a Club Manager/Steward.  This will be for an initial twelve month contract with a review after six months. 


The Club Manager/ Steward will be responsible for the smooth and successful running of the club on a day to day basis.  Primary duties include:

  • Ensuring that all aspects of the bridge sessions run smoothly
  • Liaising with Club Board and Bridge Directors
  • Managing the Club's facilities
  • Maintaining the Club diary and notice board
  • Maintaining regular stock and supplies

A level of IT competence is necessary and an interest or knowledge of Bridge is desirable.  The nature of the Club means that the Club Manager/Steward must be flexible as hours will vary but we expect the average to be 25-30 hours per week.   Salary will be commensurate with skills and experience and agreed by negotiation.  On-site accommodation is available and will be part of the salary package.  

This position could be suitable for a couple with one acting as steward and the other running the catering requirements.  Whether a Couple or Single the Club Manager/Steward is an integral part of the Club and a sociable and helpful nature is essential.

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.
