Welcome to Tallahassee Duplicate Bridge Club

Welcome to the Tallahassee Duplicate Bridge Club's (TDBC) website.

TDBC was established in 1959 as a not-for-profit organization by local bridge enthusiasts and continues to provide opportunities for all bridge players, no matter their experience or skill level, to enjoy this wonderful game.  

           In-Person Play

TDBC games are held at the Tallahassee Senior Center, 1400 N Monroe St, on Tuesday & Thursday, at Fellowship Presbyterian Church, 3158 Shamrock St. S on Wednesday & Friday and at Westminster Oaks, 4449 Meandering Way (lower level) on Sunday. 

Daytime games begin at 1:00 PM except for Sunday Games at Westminster that start at 1:30 PM. The fee for games at Fellowship are now $7/person. 


All participants at in-person games are required to be vaccinated. Masks are now optional at games at Fellowship Presbyterian Church. 
At Westminster, remember, no parking on the grass. Plenty of parking is available in the garage.
