NAPLES BRIDGE CENTER
NAPLES BRIDGE CENTER

Welcome to the Premier Bridge Club in Naples, Florida

The Naples Bridge Center has a long history of serving the bridge-playing community with games and education, dating back to 1970. As a member-owned, non-profit organization it provides a premier environment for both learning and playing bridge. Visitors are always welcome.  Classes are constantly being offered, and there are multiple games every day!

All games are sanctioned by the American Contract Bridge League (ACBL) and directed by a staff of professionals.  Easily reached from all areas of Collier County, the NBC features the nicest playing conditions in Southwest Florida.  We plan to expand both the parking and the building in 2016 and 2017!

We are located at 5865 Golden Gate Parkway Naples, FL. 34116, just off I-75 at exit 105 and less than five miles from US 41. 

For more information call (239) 455-4445 or e-mail us at info@naplesbridge.com

MASTERING BASIC CONVENTIONS (Eight weeks, beginning 4/7) with Tony Cipolla

Saturdays @9:15am

This is the third in the series of the ACBL's official courses.   This course is great for either the new player who is ready to learn these conventions OR the player who would like a good solid review.  If you learned most of your convention knowledge from other people (the virus method!) rather from a course, we highly recommend this course!

THURSDAYS (9:00AM) beginning 4/12

The First in the ACBL's official series.   Learn to play the greatest game ever invented!

WE HAVE A FACEBOOK PAGE! CLICK HERE TO OPEN IT!

Our facebook page is new, and there isn't much on it yet.

I will use it for news and occasional announcements.  We can also use it to discuss interesting hands and bidding, and anything else bridge related.  We will NOT use it for political discussions, gossip, etc.  :-)   I think everyone understands why.  

I would especially love it if some of you can post some pictures and bridge news on the site.

If you want to use the facebook page to ask about a hand, I will try to answer as often as time permits.  Perhaps some of out other experienced players will help out, as well.

Jack
