The New Melville Club House
The New Melville Club House

The New Melville Bridge Club was delighted to move into a new clubhouse in 2013. The building has now been completely refurbished giving the club some superb playing facilities including two dedicated match rooms, a teaching room and a large open playing area that accommodates twenty eight tables.

The club is located close to Edinburgh Zoo and has many buses stopping outside. Parking is also very easy and convenient.

Enjoy your bridge!

Thursday Evening Bridge

Changes to Thursday evenings!

With the growth in the Thursday evening 'No Fears' game, it has been decided to split it into two separate games, starting on 7th May.

One game will be called 'Thursday Pairs', and is aimed at people who are more than a year beyond the basic SBU course of lessons. This tournament, which is match pointed, will also appeal to Club members who would like a relaxed game!

The second tournament will retain the 'No Fears' title, and is aimed at those who are still doing the SBU course, or have recently finished it. This game will be a bit slower than the other one, with opportunity for help and advice!

So there is something for everyone on Thursdays!

Club Information

There are bridge sessions five days of the week Monday through to Friday. Most are in the evening starting at 7.00 but there are afternoon sessions on Mondays and Wednesdays

 The sessions include beginners' events, gentle social games and regular club competitions. For a number of our sessions you can turn up without a partner and be guaranteed a game. 

Full details can be found in the information section of the menu.

Boards are duplimated and hand records are available immediately after play as well as on our website.

Computer scoring is used in conjunction with wireless Bridgemate tabletop boxes.

There is a break for refreshments when tea and coffee is served.
