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.
The Bridgewebs App for the Apple iPhone / iPad / iPod Touch is now available.

Introduction

The Vero Beach Bridge Center is a wonderful place to learn to play or to renew your love of bridge. As the season kicks off, we are offering a wide variety of courses and single session classes designed to help you learn the game or improve your game. When you opened this page the Nav Bar on your left opened with  access to flyers and descriptions of all that variety.

As your skills develop, with over 1080 VBBC members playing 360+ days a year, there are plenty of opportunities to play. We have a large, friendly group of players and there are many games every week that are designed just for progressing players. Whether you play social bridge, used to play bridge in college or never played a card game we can help you learn to play, and enjoy, duplicate bridge. We offer Beginning Bridge lessons each month and two student games each week. Stop by the VBBC or call our office, 562-3008, for schedule details.
