Welcome to Rugby Village Bridge Club, an English Bridge Union affiliated duplicate bridge club serving Rugby and surrounding areas. Rugby Village Bridge Club supports duplicate bridge playing at all levels and offers sessions for beginners and improvers as well as more experienced players.

Since April 2010 we have grown to 167 members offering four competitive sessions and one supervised play session every week, and adding another supervised play session and two or three lessons per week in the teaching term. We offer a range from nuture for the novice right through to opportunities to play for the club for more ambitious players.

We don't mind whether you have a high National Grade, no National Grade, or you don't know what that is!  

We pride ourselves on the friendly and supportive atmosphere at all our lessons, practice and competitive sessions; the excellence of our coffee, tea and biscuits; and our clean, well lit, comfortable venue with 70 off street, well lit parking places.
