Game Night 499 - Thursday evening at 7:00 p.m. - if you have up to 499 Masterpoints, then this is the Game for you!  Pre-dealt hands and Hand Records!

Play and Learn Duplicate Bridge: On Tuesdays, bridge tip at 12:30 p.m. and game right after Tip.  Ask questions during the bidding and also receive some play tips throughout the game.  You may have up to 20 Masterpoints to Play in the Game

Easy Duplicate Bridge:  On Thursdays, games starts bridge tip at 12:30 p.m. and game right after Tip.   Make a decision about bids and play your hands --- questions are welcome if time permits at the end of a round, at a break, or at the end of the afternoon session.  You may have up to 100 Masterpoints to Play and be eligible for points in the Game (over the limit - you're welcome to play only).

Come and play novice and intermediate bridge!  You are invited to attend with or without a partner...if you need a partner, then we will arrange one.  The atmosphere is friendly, the players are open and welcoming creating a wonderful environment to advance your bridge skills. 

On Tuesdays, you may ask questions during the bidding and employ memory aids or 'cheat sheets'. 

On Thursdays, we encourage decision making during the bidding and play so no memory aids ('cheat sheets, etc) are allowed during the game.  However, the Director and Assistant Directors are always eager to answer questions, if time permits, after a hand, round or at the end of the session. Thursdays, using pre-dealt hands at the game provides a great opportunity to figure out each 'hand puzzle' and then learn which contracts were possible:  this feature allows you to communicate effectively with your partners.  We try to play at least 18 Boards per session.  

If you're looking for a game and practice where you can use 'cheat sheets' and or other memory aids, then I recommend Play and Learn, which is Supervised Play occurring on Tuesday afternoons starting at 12:30 p.m. for a bridge tip and game at the same location -----St. John's Anglican Church, 19 Don Ridge Drive, NorthYork, Toronto, ON, M2P 1H3, just south of Highway 401.

We look forward to meeting you and playing together!
