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. We are pleased to welcome our new club manager Andrew Bailey, and our new full time caterer Jane Mawdsley who will be providing a range of soups sandwiches and her amazing baked goods as well as the normal range of teas, coffees and soft drinks.

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.  

Website Downtime and Functions unavilable

Bridgewebs has experienced a server crash earlier this week due to a hardware failure on the server. This effected all bridgeweb websites and services. The server has been temporally repaired and is functioning at 80% capacity. Several services (such as the graph function in the personal analysis)  have been disabled by bridgewebs to improve stability. They are planning to migrate to a new server soon but they do not have a date for this yet. Until they do so we will continue to have intermittent outages at random.

We ask you to bear with us while bridgewebs corrects the problem.
