Our goal is to have the friendliest game in town!
Happy New Year
Cold and flu season is upon us again. None of us wants to catch it, but, inevitably, some of us will. The bridge club is, unfortunately, a high-risk setting for transmission, as we sit in close proximity to each other, move around the room, and share boards and cards that we handle with our germ-covered hands. And, while getting the flu is an unpleasant annoyance for most of us, for some it can prove deadly.
Please: if you are sick, stay home. Don’t take a chance of being the one who infects your friends. Don’t worry about disappointing your partner; your partner would rather miss a game and stay healthy.
Let’s all stay healthy this season.
Your NOTL Management Committee
Welcome to the Niagara-on-the-Lake Duplicate Bridge Centre. We offer a friendly, ACBL santioned game every Tuesday and Friday afternoon at the Niagara-on-the-Lake Community Centre, Anderson Lane.

Cost for regular games is $5.00 for members and $7.00 for non-members.
Membership fees are $20.00 yearly and are due in September.
Special games, charity games, and socials have a slightly increased fee. See the calendar for details of upcoming games.

The ACBL requires clubs that wish to hold charity games to hold one Charity Game to benefit the ACBL Charity, then the club is able to run other games to benefit local charities as it wishes. Charity games offer more Masterpoints than ordinary games and are usually offered at no extra cost to club members. Members were canvassed for suggestions during October and voted to have the proceeds donated to Niagara-on-the-Lake Palliative Care in 2018.
We strive to have a "play nice" atmosphere at our club.
Players are encouraged to respect their partners and opponents at all times, comments on bidding or play can wait until after the game.
If you feel that any player is not acting according to this policy, call the director!!
