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 179 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 200 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.
Beginners are always welcome, contact us to find out how we can introduce you to our wonderful game.
