Welcome to Acadiana Duplicate Bridge Club
Learn Bridge In A Day

The Acadiana Duplicate Bridge Club will be offering Learn Bridge in a Day on Saturday, September 30th, 2023 from 9:00 to 3:00.  You’ll nail the basics of bridge in this interactive class that has both instruction and coached play. If you’re just starting, returning to the game or wanting to “test the waters” before taking beginning bridge lessons, this day is for you. Leave the class and take on a newcomer game!

Fall Bridge Classes

The Acadiana Duplicate Bridge Club will be offering free bridge lessons this fall at the Club.  Dion Dubois will be doing the lessons.  This is open and free to all bridge members.  Non-Members of the club may attend for a one-time $25.00 fee.  The format will be a 30-minute lesson, with a summary handout, followed by Supervised Play.  Punctuality is important so we can start and end on time.  REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED for each week so Dion can plan for the day.  Please send an email to or text to 337-516-6393 by Wednesday night for the Thursday lesson. Minimum 3 people per session so Supervised Play can be effective. 

If you are not sure if this is right class for you, please contact Dion @ or 337-516-6393

Thursdays: 10:00 – 12:00: Two-Over One (Advanced)

Q/A and Supervised Play

No Partner? No Problem!!!


The club has an extra player on hand for the Monday, Wednesday and Friday games in case someone needs a partner. So if your partner cancels at the last minute, or if you are not able to find a partner, come anyway.  If one person needs a partner, the director will play with them. If the director already has a date, that partner will play with the extra player and the director will sit out. And of course if two people need partners they can play together.  So if you want to play and do not mind taking potluck, all you need to do is show up by 10:15 and you are guaranteed to play.
