Website

With effect from Thursday 18 January 2018 this is the official website of the Glasgow Bridge Centre.

 
Welcome to Glasgow Bridge Centre
Welcome to Glasgow Bridge Centre

The Glasgow Bridge Centre enjoys a reputation as one of the finest bridge clubs in Scotland – let alone Glasgow.

Players of all abilities come to enjoy their bridge at evening and afternoon tournaments throughout the week.  The club – located in the Shawlands area of Glasgow – also runs a comprehensive bridge teaching programme for would-be Zia Mahmoods!

Formed in 1983, the GBC has a proud history.  Over the years, celebrated Scottish internationalists including Willie Coyle, Sam Leckie, Victor Goldberg, and Morag Malcolm have all played at our club.

Indeed Zia himself has graced the green baize here as guest of honour during one of his visits to Scotland.

Albert Benjamin, inventor of the world-famous 'Benji Acol' bidding system, also played a vital role in the club's history.  It was he who founded the Kenmure Club – a great Glasgow bridge institution which joined forces with the St Mungo Club to create GBC.  An atmospheric photograph of the great man  (did everyone smoke in those days?) hangs inside the front door of our premises at 1055 Pollokshaws Road – close to Queens Park.

For more than 50 years, we have continued to promote all that's good about bridge, encouraging high standards of play and fierce but friendly rivalry in the battle of the cards.  The Glasgow club's facilities include all the usual modern aids – Bridgemates, TV screens and a dedicated email system to announce members' results from club competitions.  Hot drinks and snacks are also available.

Our thriving membership includes many of Glasgow's top players.  If you would like to visit for a game, please do.  You're assured of a warm welcome at the club, which meets on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings, along with our regular Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon tournaments.

Come and join us!
