Tea Tree Gully Bridge Club Inc

Welcome to the web site for our club based in Tea Tree Gully, Adelaide, South Australia.

We meet to play duplicate pairs three times a week:

  • Wednesday evenings at 6.50 pm at U3A Modbury.
  • Thursday afternoons at 12:50 pm St. Pius X Church Hall. 
  • Friday afternoons at 12.50 pm at  St Pius X Church Hall.

Note: players must be SEATED by the above times to ensure inclusion in that session.

U3A Modbury is at 22 Golden Grove Road, Modbury North.   Contact Carol Davey (phone 0418 894 501, email carol-davey@hotmail.com) if you are looking for a partner for the Wednesday or Friday sessions.

St. Pius X Church Hall is at 6 Avoca Street, Dernancourt.  You may come without a partner to the Thursday Dernancourt session, but please arrive by 12:40 pm at the latest so that the director has time to find a partner for you.

Table fees are $4 for members and $6 for non members.  Please be on time.  Latecomers may not get a game.

Bridge Classes at U3A Modbury

Currently there are two bridge classes at U3A Modbury., 2024 classes will commence on Tuesday January 30th. All are held in room 7. Attendees should be vaccinated against Covid - unless they hold a valid medical exemption. Questions should be directed to the Group Leader.

The Beginners Class commences at 12.30 pm.  A tutorial is followed by a duplicate pairs session. If you have any friends who are interested in learning the game of bridge, they may like to attend.  Absolute beginners are welcome, although progress and enjoyment will be greater if they have at some time played a trick-taking card game such as Whist, 500 or Euchre. All may come without a bridge partner.  For further details contact Ross Frick (8263 7439, 0458 801 053 or rfrick@bigpond.net.au).
Click to go to Ross's U3A website.

The Intermediate Class is for more competent players and commences at 9 am.  A tutorial precedes a duplicate pairs session, finishing by 12 noon. Attend if you want to progress your bridge  - these sessions are suitable for those who may wish to play club bridge. Those attending are requested to be double vaccinated unless they have medical exemptions. Contact Milton Hart on 0416 084 191 or milton.hart@bigpond.com for more information.

The more detailed lecture/tutorial course held on Wednesday evenings has been completed.

Attendees need to belong to U3A eventually ($60 for the year for as many classes as you want to attend - 2024), but there are no weekly charges.  You may attend for a couple of weeks before joining U3A to see if you like the classes.

Parking at U3A Modbury

When attending Modbury sessions we have been asked to park in the southern car park.

The entrance to the southern car park is off Gold Court, first left on Golden Grove Road when approaching from North East Road (near Tea Tree Plaza).  Turn right at the second entrance, and drive past Modbury School to the end, then turn left into the car park next to the U3A building
