Welcome to Toronto East Bridge Club
Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

The Bridge Club Is Closed until Further Notice


Social distancing measures are a way to minimize COVID-19 transmission in the community. This means minimizing close contact with others during the peak of an outbreak. We all need to do our part to keep the most vulnerable people safe, so the Toronto East Bridge Club will be closed until further notice. We will be monitoring what the health experts are saying and follow their advice accordingly. In the meantime, we hope you and your family stay safe. Please check the website as we will post any changes there as well.

About Barbara Seagram 

Barbara Seagram owns and runs Toronto’s School of Bridge. Each year, tens of thousands of students of all levels come to learn bridge and improve their skills. 

Barbara has won the Kate Buckman Award, given to the person who has contributed most to others’ enjoyment of the game and the Audrey Grant Award for excellence in teaching. She is a Sapphire Life Master and a frequent speaker at National American Bridge Championships. She is on the list of the top 52 bridge personalities that have most influenced the game.  

Barbara is the co-author of 29 published bridge books, the most well-known being “25 Bridge Conventions You Should Know.” It is now in its 18th printing and has been translated into French, German, Japanese, and Danish. Portuguese is on its way! The book is one of the top five best-selling bridge books of the last 60 years. 

Another passion of Barbara’s is her work in underdeveloped countries, in Africa, Cambodia and, Laos. Through her charity work, she and her friend, Patti Lee, along with the bridge communities in Canada and USA have built and sustain five schools in Cambodia as well as setting up outreach programs for victims of landmine accidents. Her fundraising efforts have supplied thousands of water filters to citizens of Laos. She also works in Laos through the non-government organization, Adopt a Village in Laos.
