Brevard Duplicate General Information

Brevard Duplicate is a small, friendly club formed in March 2015.  Our club is located in Brevard, North Carolina--home of the white squirrel. Yes, you can sometimes see white squirrels in the parking lot.  Generally we host 6 to 8 tables and 10 to 12 in the summer months.  Brevard Duplicate holds its sessions in the French Broad Community Center at 281 E. French Broad Street.  This center belongs to the City of Brevard.  Parking at the Center is limited, so come early for the best spots.  There are coffee and snacks at the games.  Although small, the club welcomes all newcomers.

Did you feel isolated during COVID?  Do you want to make new friends?  Do you want to challenge your brain and keep it active in a fun way?  Bridge is a very social game.

Starting Friday, August 20th, at 9:30 a.m., at the French Broad Community Center, 281 E.

Who should take this class?  It is appropriate for

  • People who have never played bridge
  • People who have not played in a long time

Bridge has changed a lot in the last 40 years.  You will learn the newest methods of play.  You will learn Standard American Bridge.

The first class will start at the most basic level, proceed through opening bids and responses to opening bids, and will include the Stayman Convention and Jacoby Transfers.  You will learn some basic defensive techniques and some basic playing techniques.

Preregistration and vaccination are required, and you can register HERE.

We will be using the Bidding in the 21st Century textbook, which  can be purchased at Amazon or Baron Barclay.  The textbook is required.

More Opportunities to Play Online Bridge!

The Brevard Duplicate Bridge Club has joined the Southeast Carolina Bridge Consortium

What does this mean for you?

More online games, seven days a week! 

The Southeast Carolina Consortium includes several clubs from North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, and Georgia.

There are games offered by the consortium as well as the individual clubs.

If you go to their website, you will see two schedules - one for the consortium games, and another for the individual club games.  All of these games are available for you to play in.

It is important to remember though, that you should play in a Brevard game if one is offered at the time you want to play.  That supports our club and keeps it vibrant and healthy so that we all have a game to return to when in-person bridge resumes.

Contact Pam Harpootlian with any questions.
