Game Schedule

Bridge Games in White Rock & South Surrey

Support our local clubs!!!  It is nice to have bridge clubs in our local area.  If you want these clubs to survive in the post-COVID era, please support them by playing in their games.  The following is a list of all the games, face to face and online on BBO, run by the bridge clubs in White Rock and South Surrey.  The face to face games are serving coffee, tea and snacks.  The cost for the face to face games is $10 and for the BBO games is BB$5.00.

Monday evening 7-9 on BBO:  To find the game on BBO, select Virtual Clubs, then select ACBL - North America, then look for "South Surrey" in the name of the game or "VACB216234" as the host for the game..  There are usually 6-8 tables at this game.  Players can play with a Robot if they do not have a partner. 

Tuesday morning 11 am - 2:30 pm at Elgin Hall:  This game is attracting about 8-9 tables at this time.  We would like to see this grow to about 10 tables (or more).  Hopefully more of the players in our area who used to play in this game will return.  

Wednesday morning 10:15 am - 1:30 pm at Elgin Hall: This Duplicate Lite game has 2 sections, an Open section where anyone can play and a 299er section limited to players with 299 ACBL masterpoints or less. Each section attracts about 6-8 tables each week.  At this time, we also have a section where players new to bridge can play among themselves with "coaching" by the director and/or a volunteer.

Wednesday evening 7-9 pm on BBO:  To find the game on BBO, select Virtual Clubs, then select ACBL - North America, then look for "Peace Arch" in the name of the game or "VACB221192" as the host for the game. There are usually 5-6 tables at this game.  Players can play with a Robot if they do not have a partner. 

Thursday morning 10:15 am - 1:30 pm at Elgin Hall: This Duplicate Lite game has one section with 11-14 tables at this time. We would like to have a 299er section on Thursdays, but so far we have not had quite enough attendance to make this possible.  If the Thursday attendance increases to 12+ tables on a consistent basis, we will try a 299er section on Thursdays once again.  Shout out to the 299er players: if you want a 299er section on Thursdays, help us increase the attendance to 12+ tables so that a separate section becomes possible.  Thanks.
