The Naples Bridge Center has a long history of serving the bridge-playing community with games and education, dating back to 1970. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization it provides a premier environment for both learning and playing bridge. Visitors are always welcome. Classes are constantly being offered, and there are games every day, usually several!
All games are sanctioned by the American Contract Bridge League (ACBL) and directed by a staff of professionals. Easily reached from all areas of Collier County, the NBC features the nicest playing conditions in Southwest Florida. And we plan to expand the building within the next year!
We are located at 5865 Golden Gate Parkway Naples, FL. 34116, just off I-75 at exit 105 and less than five miles from US 41.

Bridge Basics 1 -- taught by Tony Cipolla.
Learn to play the greatest game ever invented! We are using the official ACBL course.
Wednesdays (Ongoing) 9:00AM -11:15AM or 7:00PM - 9:00PM
In a "Chat" game, players play a regular duplicate game, but a shortened version. During the play, moderators will come and advise players as they have questions. This is a GREAT way to learn!
(FREE LESSON @ 8:20 and 6:30 before game)
Thursdays (Ongoing) 9:00AM -11:15AM
"Play and Learn" taught by Jack Brawner
Play random hands and then discuss them. Every hand is a puzzle and a lesson. Bidding, judgment, play, defense, etc. - it all comes up, but nobody (including the teacher!) knows when!
Saturday, October 19 9:00AM - 11:15AM
"Preempting your way to success" taught by Jack Brawner
Learn how to preempt with more accuracy AND more frequency. The opponents fear quality preemptors. This class emphasizes using vulnerability and the losing trick count to cause the maximum problems for the opponents while at the same time remaining both safe AND accurate yourself!
Saturday, November 2 9:00AM -11:15AM
"Balancing -- the easiest was to improve your score"
taught by Jack Brawner
Mike Lawrence wrote an entire book on balancing, and there is even a revised edition on our bookshelf! Jack has boiled it down to the common balancing situations that come up every session. The opponents should not be allowed to play the contract in certain situations. What are those situations, and what can you do about it? This class will IMMEDIATELY improve your game.
All lessons, unless otherwise noted, are $15 per session for members and $17 per session for non-members.
Chat games are $10/$12. You do not need to register OR have a partner- just show up!
