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.  
We are currently ranked at #4 in North America for 2017 based on the number of tables of bridge played thus far!

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.
