CIBC COVID-19 Policy

Covid-19 Policy Update

The Cayman Island Bridge Club has been operating a policy by which all members who wish to attend duplicate sessions or lessons must be fully vaccinated and provide proof of vaccination.

In addition, in the last few months, as per government recommendations, the Club has asked all members to wear masks whilst at the bridge club and has also provided alcohol based hand sanitizers.

At our last annual general meeting, it was agreed that because all members are fully vaccinated, the wearing of mask is to become optional UNLESS anyone attending insists that everyone should be wearing a mask.  This new practice will be operated as from today 31 January 2022

The Club will keep you updated of any changes to its Covid 19 policy as they are brought about.

WELCOME TO THE CAYMAN ISLANDS BRIDGE CLUB

Duplicate Bridge has been a social pastime in the Cayman Islands for nearly 50 years, started by Michael Cantin in the old Cayman Arms pub. Sir Vassal Johnson who lived in George Town was Cayman’s first Financial Secretary, also the first Caymanian to be knighted by the Queen was a quiet, dignified, gentleman who loved to play Bridge. He was Cayman’s Bridge club champion for years.

At the Cayman Islands Bridge Club, we play with the emphasis not so much on winning the game as on enjoying it.

We are primarily a Members' Club, but visitors with at least some experience of playing club Bridge are welcome to come along and play.

Our regular Bridge sessions are on Tuesday evenings and Friday mornings.  There is a gentler Duplicate session on Monday evenings. Please check the information tab for times and our address.

There is car parking available on site, results are available at the end of play and on this website.

We are currently not affiliated with a Bridge Association at this time.

Learn to Play Bridge!

Bridge for Beginners....our course is designed for players who have little or no experience playing the game!

We guarantee that you will be made to feel most welcome at the beginners class and will thoroughly enjoy the start of your journey learning this exciting game. The 9 week course will cover the basics and will prepare you for supervised play.  Our lessons are based on the idea that you have not played Bridge, have played very little Bridge or have not played in a long time.

These lessons can also be used as a supplement to what you already know about Bridge. Many beginners have tried to learn Bridge online only to be confused by the bidding principles. Learning Bridge in a small group, in a classroom situation with structured lessons and a teacher who knows how the game is played, then you will be able to incorporate these lessons into your learning path.

Once you know the basics of Bridge you will be ready to join our Improver’s Duplicate class, where the real fun begins!
