About the club
About the club

Tavistock Millennium Bridge Club is a friendly, sociable bridge club that welcomes new members.  Its core activity is a session of duplicate bridge played every Thursday evening in the basement church hall of the United Reformed Church, Russell Street, Tavistock, Devon.  Members are asked to arrive and be seated by 6.30 pm.  Play will start as soon as the Bridgemates have been configured.  There is a host system, so it is not necessary to arrange a partner in advance.  

We also organise online Pairs leagues on (BCL) To participate in these leagues  you will need to take out either full or online membership of BCL. There have also been informal online team matches both within the club and against other clubs which it is hoped will continue.

Finally the club provides a forum for members to organise and play social bridge either face to face, or online through BCL or other online sites such as

The club has recently invested in a new Bridgemate II system allowing instant table data entry and results at the end of the evening. 

Visitors and new members

Visitors are welcome and may play up to three times before needing to become a member.  The cost is £3 for one person or £5 for a pair.  Please ring the Chair, Joe Pitt, on 07861638629 to let him know you are going to attend or use the contact form on the information section of this website.

New members are also very welcome both experienced and the less so. If you are planning on taking the step from having recently learnt bridge and are unsure whether club duplicate is for you don't worry - you can come along as a visitor and you will be partnered with an experienced but understanding member who will support you through that process. After all everyone playing had to make that step at one time. Again contact Joe who will advise and help. 



Andrew Robson Tuition Day Thursday March 14th

The big day was a huge success with 106 players attending from not only Tavistock but Devon, East Cornwall and even Somerset. Andrew taught about Quick Defence, 4th Suit Forcing and Negative Doubles but made sure the day was interactive, amusing and a mixture of bidding and playing. It was helped by the superb venue of The Kings Centre, the carpark marshalling run by Men in Sheds and the catering by Alison Stacey of the Tea Pod 

Charity Evening November 2nd 2023

Our annual charity evening raised over £320 for the friends of Tavistock library- you may have seen the report in the Tavistock Times. A huge thank you to everyone.

We already have ideas for a nominated charity for 2024

Do you want to learn Bridge?

Duplicate Bridge is a fantastic card game - quite the best there is. It is sociable, enjoyable, is very good exercise for the brain, and unlike other card games does not rely on you getting dealt the right cards at the right time. There is no luck involved because you are ultimately being compared against other people being dealt exactly the same cards. It's what you do with those cards that matters. The club itself does not currently run teaching sessions but contact Joe through the website and he will be able to point you in the direction of some very capable teachers.
