ABOUT US

Operating for more than 50 Years, the Bayside Bridge Club is known as a welcoming, friendly club that caters for beginner, intermediate and advanced bridge players alike.

We offer the full bridge experience, from lessons for beginners, to Supervised sessions for those developing their game, or just interested in the social aspect of the game, to Duplicate sessions for the more (and the less) serious players.

Our Values

To provide a safe and welcoming environment for anyone wishing to learn, play and improve their bridge.

To encourage courteous behaviour and contribute to the enjoyment of the game for all.

To foster an environment which encourages the growth of the game in our region."

Welcome to Bayside Bridge Club
FESTIVAL OF EXTENSION

 

Introducing, our Festival of Extension

We’re delighted to provide you with our next series of lessons.

Lessons are held on Tuesday nights at 7:30pm or Thursday mornings at 10am at the Hampton Bayside Bowls Club, 25 Fewster Rd, Hampton.

$20 per lesson for members and $25 for non-members.

Places are limited – bookings are essential.

Doubles:  Do you know when, how and why to Double?  Do you know the difference between a takeout double and a strength double?  Or when to make a penalty double?  Come learn how to use doubles effectively.

Game Force: 2 Club Opening and Responses:  Are you forced to respond to partner’s opening bid?  What if you have no points?  How and why, you should bid is covered in this lesson.   

Also, you may know Gerber and Blackwood – but have you learnt Roman Keycard Blackwood?  Discover how you can tell your partner if you have the King of trumps and/or the Queen of trumps.  Sounds pretty useful, doesn’t it?

Stayman and Transfers:  For the number of times these comes up during sessions, you’ll want to get them right!  Are you sure you’re communicating the correct information to your partner?   What if you have 4/5 or 5/5 in the majors.  How are you going to communicate your shape and point count to your partner?  What happens if you have no points, should you bid?

Then put what you’ve learnt into practice.   The week following the lessons, all hands at the “supervised” sessions will be Stayman and Transfer hands.  A great way to practice, practice, practice. 

Opener & Responder’s Second bids:  The language of bidding is communicating information about your hand.  Do you know the difference between “forcing” and “non-forcing” bids?  Do you know when you are allowed to make a “preference” bid?  Will you recognise when partner makes a “reverse” bid – so you don’t miss out on game?  Come join in the conversation……

SESSION TIMES AT NEW HOME

Last updated : 1st Apr 2024 15:07 ESTA
WELCOME TO OUR NEW HOME!!!

FROM 3RD MARCH, WE WILL HAVE A NEW HOME!

We are delighted to inform you that Bayside Bridge Club will, from 3rd March, be relocating to Hampton Bayside Bowls Club (HBBC)

ALL SESSIONS TIMES WILL REMAIN THE SAME

Our supervised and lessons sessions currently held at St Leonard’s Uniting Church, will also be consolidated at the new venue.

Bayside Bridge Club has been operating since 1971 and will continue to provide welcoming and friendly environment for our players for many years to come.

In making this major decision, many factors have been considered in detail.  We hope you’ll support this next stage so that we can continue to provide you with an enjoyable outing playing cards and socialising with your friends.

Hampton Bayside Bowls Club (HBBC) are at the beginning of their own “next phase,” so we see this as an opportunity to form a partnership that will see our two organisations foster strong and enviable community hub within Bayside.

What you can expect:

  • Ample parking – front (at the main entrance) and back (off Earlsfield Rd)
  • Bus route 828 – stops right outside (route to and from Hampton and Southland train stations).
  • Only 2.3 Kms from current venue.  Literally only a few minutes away.
  • Car routes on leaving -  avoid nearby school zones.
  • Large undercover deck – feel free to bring your lunch and enjoy it with your friends before the game.  Or a drink after the game.
  • Bar – on good advice, we’re told the cheapest prices in Bayside.
  • Sunday music sessions – stay for drink and enjoy the music on the deck from 4:30pm (you can even arrange food delivery from your favourite Bayside restaurant).
  • New tables* and comfortable chairs.

*Tables are on order, so may not be there for the opening weeks.

Whilst the bar isn’t usually open on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, HBBC volunteers will be opening the bar after our sessions – especially for our players!  We ask that if you usually stay for a drink, you continue to, and encourage others, so that we can ensure it is viable for the club to continue to provide this service to our members.

It is this type of “working together” that we’ve been especially grateful for whilst developing our relationship with HBBC.  Their Board members are prominent Bayside figures, are lovely people and have been engaging and responsive to our requests and negotiations.  We look forward to working with them over the years to come.

The open communicative, consultative and solution orientated approach of the HBBC Board has given us great faith, that together, we will continue to provide you with a “home bridge club” of which, you are proud.

Profiles on the HBBC Board members can be found here: HBBC Board

Hampton Bayside Bowls Club is on the corner of Fewster and Earlsfield Roads, Hampton.

We encourage you to visit their website here: Hampton Bayside Bowls Club

Thank you again for your support.  We look forward to welcoming you to our new home from 3 March.

At Bayside Bridge Club, we believe in promoting our community within our community.  To this end, we have invited our members (and their families) who own businesses, to become part of our Business Directory.  That way, if a member needs a plumber, or financial advice, or their wooden floors touched up, they know that they can turn to our directory and have confidence that they are not only getting the best quality services, but that they are helping a fellow member.  There is no cost to being part of our Directory.

BAYSIDE BRIDGE CLUB AND GOLDEN DAYS RADIO 95.7

We are so excited to announce that we will be sponsoring two programs on Golden Days Radio. 


Established in Moorabbin in 1992, GDR 95.7fm are a community radio station that “cater to the void left behind by the bittersweet feeling of nostalgia in our hearts and minds”.

They play music with a broad appeal ranging from the 1930’s to the 1980, from classical, to movies, to Broadway and good old rock ‘n roll.

We feel that there is a great synergy between ourselves and GDR, not only in demography and geography, but also in our love of community and bringing people together. 

Even more so, because two of their presenters are also members of Bayside Bridge Club. 
So, we are ecstatic to be sponsoring ‘Sunday Breakfast with Jack Saunderson’ (8am to 12midday)  and ‘Thursday Afternoon with Prudence Vernall’ (12midday to 3pm)!
 
Please tune in to Jack and Prudence and GDR generally on 95.7fm They’re also online at: https://www.mainstreamnetwork.com/listen/player.asp?station=gndr_fm

To listen to them anywhere, they have apps that you can download onto your phone, just visit their website: https://goldendaysradio.com/
 
We see this as a way to not only support a community radio station, but also an opportunity to achieve one of our primary reasons to exist –

to promote and grow the game of bridge in the Bayside community.
