Welcome to Adelaide Bridge Centre
Toilet redevelopment

PLEASE NOTE From Monday October 14th, work will begin on extending the toilet facilities on our level and will take one week to complete. Becuase of the noise, etc, associated with the building work, the BRIDGE CLUB WILL MOVE TO THE FUNCTION CENTRE FOR THAT WEEK. So, from Monday 14th October to Satuday 19th October, all bridge sessions will be in the function centre accessed through the MAIN ENTRANCE just before the undercover carpark, and by the lift TO LEVEL 1.

Melbourne Cup, Tuesday November 5th

The club is celebrating Melbourne Cup this year with a duplicate game from 9.30am to 12.40pm followed by a "grazing lunch" and complimentary drink from the end of bridge to about 3.30pm IN THE FUNCTION ROOM. The cost of the lunch is $40 per person but the club is offering a bridge and lunch package for $45. Tickets for this package must be purchased and paid for prior to the Cup day and are selling fast. You can, of course, simply play bridge on that morning for normal table fees ($11 members, $13 non-members) - no need to book for just the bridge. There will be Cup Sweeps ($1and $2) available. See any director to purchase the "bridge and lunch" tickets, and the lunch menu is on display in the club (dietary requirements will be catered for).
