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-seven 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.

Ronnie Stuart

We regret to announce the death of Ronnie Stuart. Ronnie had been a popular member for many years although had not been able to attend the club in recent years. Our condolences go to Ronnie's family and friends.
The funeral will be at South Lanarkshire Crematorium, Blantyre on Thursday 28th November at 2.45pm.

What’s on in November

In addition to our standard programme of club tournaments we have a qualifying heat of the National Pairs on Wednesday 27th. Our Saturday tournaments (commonly described as world famous!) are now in Winter mode with an evening tournament on the 2nd (7.00 pm) and an afternoon tournament on the 16th (1.30 pm)

Enjoy your November Bridge!
