One of the Best Florida Bridge Clubs

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.

Full Disclosure
Duplicate Bridge is a game of full disclosure. Please have two completed convention cards on the table and announce and alert bids appropriately.  VBBC enforces the Zero Tolerance Policy for unacceptable behavior.  The policy is to create a much more pleasant atmosphere in our games and to attempt to eradicate unacceptable behavior in order to make the game of bridge more enjoyable for all.

Roof Work Continues
Roof Work Continues

Approximately 80% of the roof has been removed and replaced.  We need a good weather window. We have continued our regular club activities and schedule. With the contractors help, staff's hard work and member's volunteerism disruptions have been minimal. Thank you all. 

The spirit of volunteerism, the generosity of our members and the joy we all take in the game are what makes the VBBC such a great club. During this work, lets keep that in mind. Be flexible and patient. Before we know it we will have a new, more efficient roof and a dry building.
