Vanderbilt Bridge Club
Vanderbilt Bridge Club

The Vanderbilt Bridge Center is a member owned duplicate bridge club named for Harold S. Vanderbilt, the man credited with inventing contract bridge in the mid-1920s. The center is located west of downtown Nashville and hosts 17 games weekly, including eight limited masterpoint games for new and intermediate players. All sessions are open to members and non members alike. Day and evening bridge classes are also available.

** Update 3/23/16**  24 more pictures added... Thank you Mary Margaret!

As you may have noticed, your pair's pictures are now displayed when you view your results.  If you click on your opponents names, you will see their pictures too.  We also have an online pictorial directory of 426 of our members and pictures may be viewed at the Members Only screen.  If you don't have a picture on file (VBC Picture Needed - updated Mar 23) and you would like it to be or if you don't like the picture that is posted, you have several options to add one.  If you already have a digital picture, you may send it to our webmaster, Rees Mitchell.  If you don't have a digital picture and know someone with a digital camera or smartphone, you can have a picture made and email or text it to Rees.  You could also ask one of the directors to take a picture of you.  The final option is you can send a hardcopy picture to Rees.  His address is in the phone directory, which may be viewed on the Members Only part of the website.  

Pictures help us get to know the names of other members of the club and make it a more enjoyable experience.  We hope you will choose to participate.  If you do not want to have a picture published, please let Rees know and he will add your name to the do not publish list.

Here is a sample from a recent game featuring Coley McGinnis and Linda Hanson.

The cookbooks are priced at $15 each or $25 for two, and all profits benefit the VBC.  These will make GREAT gifts!  You may pay by cash, check (payable to VBC), or credit card.  Jay and Anne Hitt are handling the sales.
