Welcome to Bridge d'Albret
Play Bridge in SW France
Play Bridge in SW France

Bridge d'Albret is a small friendly Anglo French bridge club located in Mézin, Lot-et-Garonne, (Department 47) bordering on the Gers within easy reach of the historic towns of Nérac and Condom in rural south west France.

We meet early Tuesday evening for Duplicate Bridge.  

The majority of our members play Acol bridge but as we have a mix of nationalities all partnerships are welcome whatever school of bridge they prefer to play.

As we are a small club it's helpful if we know in advance if you wish to play, we do our best to arrange partners if needed.

You can email us via; Contact Us.

Bridge Tutorial. January 2020
Bridge Tutorial.  January 2020

As a group of mainly debutants and improvers we have been extremely lucky to have benefited from a week of tutorials and mentoring given by Andrew Urbanski, Premier Life Master (EBU).
Andrew's ability to impart a wide range of information in a comprehensible manner to "bridgeurs" ranging in experience ensured that there was something to be gained by everyone who came along to the sessions.
Most of the sessions were held in a nearby gîte, the Gare de Sos (http://www.gare-de-sos.com), an ideal venue which we are grateful for the use of.
We hope that Andrew will mentor us again and thank him for giving us his time and experience.

 

 

Encouraging Quote!

Not sure who made it but the following quote is encouraging!
"One of the reasons bridge continues to fascinate players all over the world is that, in order to become even sort of good at it, you have to be willing to be bad at it for a long time".
