Welcome to Carlton Bridge Club

At the Carlton, we pride ourselves on welcoming all levels of players. Visitors can join any of our tournaments and we will try to find a partner if needed. Our custom-built bridge centre provides excellent playing and teaching facilities. Tournaments are scored using interactive technology and results are displayed promptly. We are pleased to offer our catering team, Westmains Catering, who provide a range of soups, sandwiches and amazing baked goods as well as the normal range of teas, coffees, soft drinks and a selection of alcoholic drinks.

We are located just to the North of Edinburgh city centre.

Details of the regular tournaments are available here.  We offer classes at a range of skill levels- details here.  

Sign Up for the BBO Online Teams

While the club is closed June Morrison has kindly volunteered to organize some team games on BBO. If you wish to sign up please use the form in the Sign Up's section of the website (Menu on the left).


Whilst the Club is closed, Jane Mawdsley, our Carlton Caterer, is available to cook and deliver, to your home, a range of meals (soups, patés, main courses, puddings) to any members who might wish to order from her.

Club Closure

Following the Prime Minister's address on Monday 16th March the Carlton Board has taken the decision to close the club effective immediately. While we don't know how long the club will remain closed we are expecting it to last until at least June.


During this time there are various online options such as Bridgebase Online to allow people to play their weekly bridge game.


If you have any questions please email Andrew at We ask that you check the website frequently as we will post any updates there.

Upcoming changes in 2020

Wednesday Evening Teams

The last Wednesday of each calendar month until June will be a teams’ competition. You can enter as a team of four players but you are welcome to come along as a pair as there will always be standby pair.

Wednesday Evening Standbys

As current Wednesday evening players know, the Board has been providing standby players to eliminate the half table sit out. Based on feedback from Club Members, we have decided to offer all Members the opportunity to act as the standby pair. There is a signup sheet on the notice board in the Club. There will always be a standby team for the teams event on the final Wednesday of the month.

Friday Night Social

The last Friday of each month will be a relaxed social event. We will be offering a free glass of wine (or a soft drink for the drivers!) to all attendees.

You can get a graph of your scores at the club with different partners and over different periods in Personal Analysis.  It is a sub-menu in Results Calendar, click here.  Select your name to see your scores.
