Welcome to the Toronto East Bridge Club website.
In the fall of 2018 a group of dedicated bridge players were invited to the home of Ada Spanjaard to begin the discussion about the possibility of running an ACBL sanctioned bridge game in the eastern area of Toronto. At the time there were no sanctioned bridge clubs south of the 401 and east of the Don Valley. If you wanted to play ACBL games in the east end you had to travel west and north or east to Ajax or Oshawa. There are private sanctioned clubs,however, these are not open to the general public.
At subsequent meetings we determined that we could offer a 0-299 game twice a week. After connecting with ACBL, rounding up the necessary cash for equipment and sleuthing neighbourhoods, a suitable location was found at Corpus Christi Church. On April 29, 2019 we held our first game. In September, Audrey Grant delivered a timely workshop on the difficult topic of defense.
Please visit the Committee Menu to meet our dedicated committee members.
We hope that you will find useful information here to enhance your bridge experience. The results of games are uploaded shortly after each session. You can find your scores along with what contracts other players were able to bid and what they made. This is one of the biggest advantages of playing duplicate bridge. You and your partner can discuss your bidding and playing and how you might have made a much higher result. Hand records of the game are provided after the session so that you can have a hard copy of the deals and possible contracts.

*The Beginner Game is designed for new players with a basic bidding knowledge to come out and get familiar with duplicate bridge. During this game you will be able to use your cheat sheets and notes! You can ask the supervisor questions during the bidding and play! You can change your bid, change your mind, change your played card! Learn the value of keeping score and comparing your results with others in the group.
You do not have to be an ACBL member to join in the game but we require players to have at least a minimum basic bridge foundation that includes knowledge of bidding.
Please note: Our club is a fragrance free space! Thank you for your consideration.
