Sunday Swiss Game Schedule

Cashiers Duplicate Bridge will have Sunday Swiss games on

June 18   July 16   August 20  September  17

Games will begin at 1:30 and we ask everyone to be there at 1:15 so we can start on time.  The game will be "Eight is Enough" as described below.   

1.  Each 4-person team may add up to NO MORE THAN 8 points for the 4-person team. 

  • Players under 500 masterpoints count as 1 point.         (C Player)
  • Players with 500-1500 masterpoints count as 2 points. (B Player)
  • Players with over 1500 masterpoints count as 3 points. (A Player)

A team may have LESS THAN 8 points or 8 points exactly, but not more than 8. This means that no team may have more than 2 A players and, if a team has 2 A players, they must be playing with 2 C players.

2.  We will play 4 rounds of 6 hands each, time permitting.  We must be finished in 4 hours or less, which should be no problem if everyone arrives on time and plays at a good pace.

3.  Cost is $3 to enter the Rec Center, which goes to the Center, and $25 per team, if all players are members of the Cashiers Duplicate Bridge club.  If your team has non members, those players will be an additional $5 each.  

If you plan to play, please email with your teammates names.  We need a minimum of 6 teams to hold the game.  If we do not get enough for the game, Susan will email you on the Saturday before the game to let you know.  As always, walk-ins of full four person teams are welcome, but reservations will have priority.

5. If you need teammates to make a team of four, please use our partnership desk link in the right hand column of this page.


Welcome to Cashiers Duplicate Bridge Club
About Us
About Us

Welcome to the Cashiers Duplicate Bridge Club (CDBC) website. The CDBC is a member-owned club fully sanctioned by the American Contract Bridge League (ACBL). It is a friendly game where all players are welcomed. The club was started around 1990 as a seasonal game with the able leadership of Jean and Ed Whitby. Cashiers Duplicate Bridge Club is incorporated as a non-profit organization to promote bridge games for members and guests.  The Club is adminisered by an elected Board of Directors. 

We normally have an OPEN game and a 299 game each Tuesday during the season at 1 PM (please arrive by 12:45) at the Cashiers Recreation Center. We can usually accommodate 24 tables, and RESERVATIONS ARE NO LONGER NECESSARY.  

The club uses Bridgemate scoring terminals and we were able to purchase a dealing machine at the beginning of the 2014 season, so all games feature pre-dealt boards and hand records. Our goal is to have results posted on this website before our players return to their homes.

Cashiers is a lovely unincorporated municipality situated in the mountains of Southwestern North Carolina.  It is a destination vacation place for many who enjoy the simple life of Cashiers and the many activities it has to offer. It has cool summers, wonderful seasons, and superb places to eat. However, its main asset is the good people who come to Cashiers on vacation or that have homes here.

Game Stratification Levels

Our game generally uses the following stratification levels (But may be modified at the discretion of the Director)

  • C Players - 0 to 500 MPs
  • B Players - 500 to 2000 MPs
  • A Players - 2000 and above
Interclub Tournament 2022

Interclub Bridge Tournament - 2022-2023

The 2023 tournament will be held on Thursday August 10.  The 8 participating clubs are scheduled to be Cullasaja CC, Highlands CC, Highland Falls CC, CC of Sapphire Valley, Burlingame CC, Wade Hampton GC, Wildcat Cliffs CC and Mountaintop CC. Tricia Muniz will co-ordinate for the host club.  

After a two-year hold for COVID, the Interclub Bridge tournament continued in 2022 marking the 17th year of competition. Burlingame hosted the 2022 event.

In this format, each club supplies two four-person teams for the competition – an A level team and a B level team based on Master points.  Each A team plays a six-board match against each other club’s A team for a total of seven rounds while the B group does the same.

Winner of the A group in 2022 was Highlands CC and winner of the B group was Wade Hampton.

Total victory points of the two teams from each club are added together to decide the overall championship.  In 2022, Highlands won the competition, with Wade Hampton coming in 2nd, and CC of Sapphire Valley 3rd.  Each winning team receives a beautiful trophy crafted by Jim Holimon to keep for the following year when the trophy is awarded to that year's winner.  




For the 2023 season, we are planning to begin games on June 6 and continue through the last Tuesday in September.  Joan Braender will be our director again. 

Games begin at 1:00 pm sharp.  Please plan to arrive 15 minutes before all games so we can sign up and get settled to begin on time.  

Dues this year will be $20, and game fees will be $5 for members and $10 for non-members.  As always, each player must pay an entry fee of $3 directly to the Rec Center staff at the front desk, or have a long-term membership of some kind. 

We are now ready to reinstate Sunday Swiss games.  Please see the rules (which have changed a little) and dates in the column to the far left of this page. 

All games will be held at the Cashiers Recreation Center, 355 Frank Allen Road, Cashiers, N. C. which is located just west of the Cashiers Post Office.
