Club Closure (COVID-19)

In the best interests of our members the Buchanan Bridge Club is currently closed until further notice. 

The Buchanan has been the home of bridge in Glasgow since 1932.
The club is in a 19th century listed building and yet has all the benefits of technology with computer-dealt boards, Bridgemates on all tables, etc.  Up to thirty-seven tables in play can be accommodated over the three floors of the building.

Bridge Classes

The Buchanan offers tuition at four levels -

  • Beginners
  • Intermediate 1
  • Intermediate 2
  • Refreshers

 

   

All classes have been suspended until further notice.

Bridge is enjoyable at all levels - for beginners and experts alike. It's mentally stimulating and for many an activity for life.

The classes run on Thursday evenings at 7.00pm and last about three hours. The new session started in September but you can still join. For full information including costs see Classes in the menu.

You can download an application form here (either for Beginners/Intermediate 1/Intermediate 2 or Refreshers/Advanced).
