Tea Tree Gully Bridge Club

Welcome to the web site for our club (formerly Walkerville Contract Bridge Club) , which is now based in Tea Tree Gully, Adelaide, South Australia.

We meet to play duplicate pairs three times a week:

  • Wednesday evenings at 7:25 PM at U3A Modbury.
  • Thursday afternoons at 12:55 PM St. Pius X Church Hall.
  • Friday evenings at 7:25 PM at U3A Modbury.

U3A Modbury is at 22 Golden Grove Road, Modbury North.   Contact Elvira Stewart-Frick (phone 8263 7439, email estfrick@bigpond.net.au) if you are looking for a partner for the Modbury sessions.

St. Pius X Church Hall is at Avoca Street, Dernancourt.  You may come without a partner to the Dernancourt sessions, but please come by 12:45 PM at the latest so that the director has time to find a partner for you.

Visitors are always welcome.  Table fees are $4 for members, and $6 for non-members, which includes refreshments.  Please be on time.  Latecomers may not get a game.

Bridge Classes at U3A Modbury

There are two bridge classes at U3A Modbury, both held on Tuesday mornings during school terms.  2017 classes begin on Tuesday 31st January. 

The beginner's class is in Room 3, starting at 9:00 am.  If you have any friends who are interested in learning bridge, they may like to attend.  Complete beginners are welcome and may come without partners.  Contact Sally Rice (8289 0238, 0429 953 631, sallyr@internode.on.net) for more details.

There is also a session for more competent players in Room 4, starting at 8.40 am.  A tutorial precedes a duplicate pairs session, finishing by 12.20 pm. Attend if you want to progress your bridge.  Contact Milton Hart on 0416 084 191 for more information.

Attendees need to belong to U3A eventually ($35 for the year for as many classes as you want to attend), but there are no weekly charges.  You may attend for a couple of weeks before joining U3A to see if you like the classes.

Sally Rice, Tournament Director
Parking at U3A Modbury
Due to complaints from the residents whose fences back on to the northern car park at U3A Modbury, we have been asked to park in the southern car park.

The entrance to the southern car park is off Gold Court, first left on Golden Grove Road when approaching from North East Road (near Tea Tree Plaza).  Turn right at the second entrance, and drive past Modbury School to the end, then turn left into the car park next to the U3A building

Club News

The 2016 AGM, preceded by a light lunch, was held for the first time at the Thursday Dernancourt Session and proved to be very successful - it was agreed that the 2017 AGM would follow the same format.
It was also agreed that the club would introduce electronic scoring at the table using the Bridge Mate system - similar to that used during the club championship.

LIFE MEMBER
Congratulations to Carol Davey who was awarded Life Membership at the 2016 AGM in recognition of her service to the club as a Committee Member and Director over many years. Well deserved Carol!

BRIDGEMATES - the electronic scoring pad system - has arrived and was used for the first time on Wednesday 15th February. The 'roll out' went very smoothly and the potential of the system was clear to all present. Pentti was congratulated on the work and attention to detail he applied to the implementation of Bridgemates system.
