OUR CLUB

The Ace of Clubs is a duplicate bridge club, located on the west side of Portland, Oregon. We provide hand records and computerized scoring for all games.

The Ace of Clubs is about connecting bridge players with all the fascinating opportunities available for them. We are a full-service bridge club that provides a place to expand and stimulate your bridge experience. Above all, we want to share the bridge experience with friends and visitors who are drawn to the wonderful and challenging game of duplicate bridge!

We have ACBL certified, qualified and experienced bridge directors to assist with bridge games every day of the week! Browse through the web site for calendar and other information!

Most importantly, we encourage you to contact us and give us feedback on the website or anything else about the club.

A typical duplicate bridge game will last between 3.5 and 4 hours. All players start and finish playing at the same time. Afternoon weekday games generally have a short lunch break.
