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.  

We are currently running an online program of tournaments for Carlton members, friends and visitors until we can safely return to our physical club.

On RealBridge in Association with Andrew Robson

Thursdays at 2.00 pm from 1st April

We have been offered an opportunity to take part in a free event arranged by Andrew Robson in conjunction with RealBridge. Andrew Robson is an international player who regularly represents England, a highly regarded author and the Bridge correspondent for The Times (of London).

We will be playing four boards selected by Andrew to cover a specific topic, followed by viewing a video of Andrew giving his insight into one of the boards, and access to his detailed analysis of all four boards.

Put these dates in your diary, grab a cup of coffee on the day and join us for half an hour to have some fun and learn from an expert.

Each session will start at 2.00pm on Thursday Afternoon.  The programme will be:

1st April       Weak Two’s

8th April       Splinter Bids

15th April     Forth Suit Forcing

22nd April    Counting and Card Placement
