Welcome to Puritan

Welcome to the Puritan Duplicate Bridge Club Page!

Welcome!
Welcome!

We host five games each week.
Monday's game is for 499ers, starting at 10:15 am.
Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday games are Open games, starting at 10:15 am.
The Saturday Open game starts at noon. 


On Thursdays we offer lessons for new players in non ACBL sanctioned sessions.
From 10 to 12:15 for Beginners-Plus - Supervised play of the hands.  Cost is $10.

New Swiss Team Format

The Swiss Team event on Thursday, March 28 will use a different and exciting set of rules.  

'Eight is Enough' evens out the experience and strength factor among teams and therefore makes a more competitive and fun event. It works this way:

All players are assigned a number 1, 2, or 3 depending on their masterpoint level:

1    Players with fewer than 500 masterpoints 
2    Players with 500- 2000 masterpoints
3    Players with more than 2000 masterpoints

No team can have more than '8' points total. For example, if two players are designated as '3', both of their teammates would have to be a '1' to keep the total at eight. A '1' and a '3' could play with two '2's.  Or four players who are all  '2' could comprise a team. It is okay for a team to total less than eight, but not more.

ACBL-Wide International Game Results from Feb 17

Due to a bug in ACBLScore, we had to run the February 17th ACBL-wide event as if it was a late game held on February 11th. As a result, the game results are not in their usual place, but can be found below:

Happy Birthday, Director Gary!

No Heat? No Problem!

On Monday, January 1st, the 499er players arrived to start the New Year, only to find no heat in the building.

Undaunted, they elected to bundle up and play on, thus proving the old adage:

Neither rain or snow, or lack of heat shall keep the Bridge Player from their appointed game.

Winter is coming
Winter is coming

While the Puritan Club makes every effort to stay open during the Winter months, we do live in New England, so there may be occurrences where we need to close due to weather-related issues. Should we need to cancel an event, the "Alert" box in the upper left corner of the home page will be updated with the current information as to which event(s) have been cancelled.
