Welcome to the RACV Bridge Club
Welcome to the RACV Bridge Club

RACV Club Members and their guests are always welcome to join us in the wonderful game of contract bridge.

The RACV Bridge Club provides the opportunity to meet and interact with like-minded Members through the game of contract bridge. The Club is affiliated with the Australian Bridge Federation (Club 3442) so to conduct masterpoint competitions, and to provide Members with access to the wider Australian community of competition bridge players. 

The Club offers Bridge workshops and classes for all levels of players, with Supervised Bridge on Monday mornings and Duplicate Bridge on Wednesday mornings. There are regular inter-Club competitions.  

The Bridge Club meets at the RACV City Club, 501 Bourke Street, Melbourne, and operates as an RACV Club Member Interest Group, within the Rules and by-laws of the RACV.

To RACV Bridge Club members, guests and visitors:

So, the end of the bridge year is close.   We’ve had a great recovery from the post-COVID numbers with almost a full house each Monday and healthy competition with more tables on Wednesday. 

The Bridge Club remains the largest special interest group within the RACV Club, boosted this year with 28 participants in Ben’s beginners’ lessons held on Wednesday afternoons. This current group, when they complete the course, will move to a supervised session on Wednesday afternoon next year.  There is apparently enough interest for another beginners’ group for 2024.  This is a very encouraging and great response to the educational component offered by our bridge club with the support of the RACV Club and our excellent teacher, Ben Kingham.

The popular Healesville Swiss Pairs weekend was once again enjoyed by all and the Congress at the end of August was very successful with planning for 2024 now underway. We have had two inter-club challenges - MCC and Kooyong – successful and fun, but sadly we were soundly beaten on both occasions.   Maybe we can redeem ourselves on November 20 against RSY.   I am very grateful for everyone’s support for these Bridge Club activities.

With the end of year comes the annual Christmas function on Monday, December 11. Bookings are open on Bridgewebs and are filling up fast.   We start back in 2024 with the January Challenge scheduled for Monday, January 22.
An invitation to this full day event will be emailed out very soon and bookings will open on Bridgewebs before the end of the bridge year.
