Well done to all the Regent Academy novice pairs who took part in the Kay Downes Novice Trophy 2018, organised by Dublin South Region and hosted by Railway Union BC.

The ethos of the Regent Academy is to foster learning and development of bridge and there is no better example of this effort than seeing so many novice members playing in regional competitions.

The Regent Bridge Club was founded in 1925, seven years before the Contract Bridge Association of Ireland (CBAI) was formed in 1932.
The Regent has been synonymous with the promotion of top level bridge in Ireland and attracts a high standard of player. Our members play every Wednesday evening and we organise leagues for teams of four on Monday evenings.
We are located at 25 Waterloo Road, Ballsbridge, Dublin 4, close to the city centre. The club offers five luxurious card playing rooms and a private bar for members and their guests.
The Regent Academy was established in 2008 to meet the growing demand for bridge lessons and provide a first class playing facility for beginners to intermediate bridge players. Bridge classes usually run from September to December and January to March each year.
The Regent Academy is part of the Regent Bridge Club and is affiliated to the CBAI. Learners have the opportunity of applying for Academy membership at the completion of classes. The club is particularly suited for players who wish to improve their standard of play and advance to higher grades
The Academy has competitions each Thursday at 7.30pm. Visitors cannot play at the Academy during the bridge season from September to May inclusive but are welcome during the summer months of June-August.
Membership of the Regent Academy is in the first instance reserved to those who have taken classes at the club and is full at present. The waiting list for membership is reviewed after the annual deadline for membership renewals. Applications for Regent Academy membership should be forwarded to Rachel Connellan (email@example.com) or to the club at 25 Waterloo Road.
