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 historyand 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 a dedicated email system to announce members' results from club competitions.  Hot drinks and snacks are also available.

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

General Procedures & Etiquette
  • ​​​​DO make your opening lead face down and do so before filling in your score card or operating the Bridgemate (it saves time!).
  • DO call the TD when something goes wrong.
  • DO keep your eye on the timer if displayed and try to keep to time.
  • DO make sure your cards are returned to the board in the correct slot.
  • DO leave your bidding cards on the table until the Opening Lead is faced.
  • DON’T ask questions about the bidding after the auction until your partner has the opening lead face down on the table.
  • DON’T pick up your cards and return to the board until everybody at the table agrees the result.
  • DON’T pressure your opponents into accepting your interpretation of the rules (call the TD).
  • DON’T make comments about the opponents bidding or play (unless invited).
