In April 1997 the Nelson Bay Diggers Social Bridge Club was begun by Ron Young.
Ron moved to Nelson Bay in 1996 and identified a need for bridge players to enjoy their game in a less formal environment. Ron approached the RSL Club and found that they were willing and pleased to sponsor a new intra-club for the RSL Club.
Twenty years on we are delighted that Wests who took over the RSL Club have continued to support the Club which now has around 100 Members. Visitors to Port Stephens area are always welcome.
