Afternoon Tournament


Avoiding problems at the table

Next Committee Meeting

Friday 21st June, 5.00pm

Welcome to Buchanan Bridge Club

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-two tables in play can be accommodated over the three floors of the building.
The Buchanan Bridge Club is a fully licensed club with a bar.

Thursday Afternoon Open Pairs

The Thursday Afternoon Open Pairs will  be taking  a break over the Summer.

The last tournament of the season will be on Thursday 27th June and will start again on Thursday 29th August.

Bridge Classes

The Buchanan offers tuition at five levels -

  • Beginners
  • Intermediate 1
  • Intermediate 2
  • Refreshers
  • Advanced




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 will start on 5th September 2019. 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).

New Tuesday Evening Tournament

From May 14th, our regular tournament on a Tuesday evening changed its format.
This new supported  tournament will continue to serve to bridge the gap between classes and the main Club Tournaments on Monday and Wednesday evenings but now there will also be experienced players on hand to guide those who might require assistance during bidding and play.
The evening is open to all those attending classes in the Buchanan and to Club members who enjoy and feel comfortable playing in a more relaxed and less competitive environment.
Play will start at 7.00pm.

The competition for the 2019 Carl Dickel Trophy will be held on Tuesday 3rd September 2019 at 7.00 pm. Please follow this link to find the complete list of prize winners for the 2018-2019 season with those eligible to play in the Carl Dickel shown in bold. Please note  that the first and second placed pairs in the Liz Smart trophy are eligible to play in  the Carl Dickel.  The normal sign-up sheet for this event will appear on the club noticeboard in early August.

Saturday Tournaments
The Saturday afternoon tournament has stopped for the summer and will restart on 19th October 2019. Play will start at 1.30pm.

The next Saturday evening tournament will be on 6th July 2019 at 7.00pm.

Both are open events and all bridge players are welcome to attend. There is no need for visitors to sign in.
There is no standby but any member looking for a partner should use the Find a Partner facility.
