Welcome to Hermanus Duplicate Bridge Club
Our Bridge Sessions

We run Duplicate Pairs in the Botanical Society Hall at the Fernkloof Nature Reserve, the De Wet Hall in Onrus and Kidbrooke Place in Onrus North.

The Monday and Wednesday sessions are held at the Botanical Society Hall, the Thursday session is held at Kidbrooke Place and the Friday session is held at the De Wet Hall.

With the exception of Thursday's Novice session, all start promptly at 13.00. Please arrive 10 minutes before the start time. (Thursday's Novice session is for Club members only and by prior registration).

Unfortunately, we don't run a Host system so please bring a partner!


We run online bridge via BBO on a Tuesday at 14.00, registration from 12.00. We can help with creating a BBO account and playing online.

Contact our Head of Online Bridge, Emmie, on ackerems@gmail.com or 083 417 6614 to find out more about playing online with us and assistance with BBO.
