Please join us each Tuesday, 9:00 - noon, at the Indian River Shores Community Center, 6001 N. A1A, for the Student Game.

play, this game is for players with less than 20 masterpoints.  It is
ideal for those who have just completed a beginning bridge course or are
 returning to bridge.  Players are allowed to use notes
and/or ask the instructor questions during play. 
No partner or reservation is required. 

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.
