At the New Melville you will receive a warm welcome whether you are a visitor, prospective member or student of the game. Our friendly club caters for players of all standards from absolute beginner to Grand Master by offering a variety of bridge sessions and classes throughout the week.

At a number of these sessions you can turn up without a partner and be guaranteed a game as we have standby players available. Click on 'Information About the Club' for full details.

Our club has one of the best playing facilities in Scotland with a large 28 table playing room, two dedicated match rooms and a teaching suite with a digital projector. The club also benefits from a modern social area where members can relax with a hot drink during mid-session breaks or enjoy a glass of wine at the end of an evening.
