Located in Vero Beach Florida, the Vero Beach Bridge Center is a member-owned bridge club. We host daily bridge games, duplicate bridge tournaments, bridge classes for all levels, celebrity speakers, and student games for new players which are all sanctioned by the American Contract Bridge League. In fact, the size of our club allows us to hold many restricted games for up and coming players, no need to swim with the sharks!
Pre-dealt boards for pair games mean no shuffling and hand records are available after each game, whether for the daily bridge play or on-site duplicate bridge tournaments. The use of Bridgemate II allows results to be ready immediately following the game.
We have one of the best duplicate bridge clubs in Florida, if not the nation.
We are currently ranked at #4 in North America for 2017 based on the number of tables of bridge played thus far!
THE ANNUAL VBBC HOLIDAY LUNCHEON

LINK TO COMMON GAME HAND ANALYSIS
Bridge is not a game of secret messages, it is a game of full diclosure; your opponent’s are entitled to know your agreements and the meanings of your bids. This starts with two filled out convention cards. The announcement and alert procedures further facilitate notifying your opponents as to your conventional understandings. It is your responsibility to understand which of your agreements do not require an alert, require an announcement, require an alert or require a post auction period alert. You can click on this story to go to a long, but very skimmable, ACBL document on Alert Procedures.
Upcoming Team Games are highlighted below.
