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 188 members offering four competitive sessions and three supervised play sessions every week of the year, and adding more supervised play and/or lessons per week in the teaching terms starting January and September. We offer a range from nuture for the novice right through to opportunities to play for the club for more ambitious players. Up to 220 players take lessons, come to practice or take part in competitions every week.

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.

More Space on Thursday Afternoons

T​he Thursday Afternoon session has been extremely popular, filling the Club Room at times. We have now booked the Sports Lounge so that we can space out across the two rooms giving much more space and quiet for the field. It was already booked on a handful of dates, but otherwise it's ours till the end of the year.
