Tutorial Course for Advanced Players

Danny Kane's series of 10 tutorials at the GBC on "Squeeze Plays" has now finished. The feedback from the first course was excellent.  Robert Clow said "I believe that most Bridge players would find this course really useful and very interesting. Danny has a relaxed, laid-back style which explains this complicated subject in simple terms. The material is well researched and easy to follow.”
The course ran on Thursday nights from 7pm - 930pm and Danny is willing to repeat the course if enough people are interested in participating. 
This course is aimed at 1st division and aspiring 1st division players. Players can choose which sessions to attend and pay £10/session. Email Danny to register your interest.

Glasgow Bridge Centre
Glasgow Bridge Centre

The Glasgow Bridge Centre enjoys a reputation as one of the finest bridge clubs in Scotland – let alone Glasgow. Players of all abilities are welcome.

Formed in 1983, the GBC has a proud history.  Over the years, many celebrated Scottish internationalists have all played at our club.

Albert Benjamin, inventor of the world-famous 'Benji Acol' bidding system,  played a vital role in the club's history and an atmospheric photograph of the great man  (did everyone smoke in those days?) still hangs in our premises at 1055 Pollokshaws Road – close to Minard Road.

For more than 50 years, we have continued to promote all that's good about bridge, encouraging high standards of play and fierce but friendly rivalry in the battle of the cards.  The Glasgow club's facilities include all the usual modern aids – Bridgemates, TV screens and our results are published on our website.  Coffee/tea and biscuits are included in the table money.

Come and join us! Email The Secretary for more information.
