Our Club

The RDS Bridge Club was founded in 1978 by Alice Scott a staff member at the RDS. Games are held on Wednesday nights at 7.30 pm in RDS Library. Start time for Major Competitions is 7.15 pm.

We have members of all standards from Novice to Master.  A Supper Night is held about once a month in the Restaurant before bridge.  The sign-up sheet for this is circulated at bridge in advance.  This is a good way to get to know your fellow members. You may also just contact Moya  Murphy or Pat Cowley to put your name down for the Supper.  It starts from 5.30 p.m.  

We are affiliated to the CBAI.  Members take part in Congresses, the Fanagans League and the 4 Fun Teams competition as well as our own RDS competitions.  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.  We run an Annual Charity bridge evening in April each year.

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 from September to May inclusive.  No individual guest may be be invited more than 3 times.  However,  during the summer months of June, July and August, guests, playing with a club member, are welcome at all club evenings.
