Our Club

The RDS Bridge Club is an active, sociable and growing bridge club.  It was founded in 1978 by Alice Scott a staff member at the RDS for members of the RDS. Games are held on Wednesday nights at 7.30 pm in the beautiful surroundings of the RDS Library. Start time for Major Competitions is 7.15 pm.

Our aim?  Primarily to provide enjoyable and sociable weekly bridge.  And so we have members of all standards from Novice to Master who enjoy playing with one another each week.  We have a Supper Night held about once a month before the game of bridge.  This is not compulsory,  but it is well attended.  We also hold a very successful Annual Charity night in aid of the Royal Hospital Donnybrook.

Having said that,  we recognize that there is an element of competitiveness to the game of bridge.  We are affiliated to the CBAI,  the umbrella club for bridge in Ireland and participate in the Simultaneous Pairs competitions of both the CBAI and IBU.  Our members participate in Local and Regional competitions such as the various Congresses,  the Fanagans League and the 4 Fun Teams competitions - with good succcess.  The highlight of our year is the competition for the Perpetual Trophy which was presented to our club at its inception by the Royal Dublin Society.

The bridge club is open to anyone who holds RDS membership.. Bridge club members are free to bring guests,  (non- RDS members),  to any non-competition night throughout the year. but between the months fof September to May inclusive, no individual guest may be invited more than 3 times. We are always delighted to see new members and we can guarantee you a warm welcome and a good game.
