Welcome to Vanderbilt Bridge Club of Nashville

 Hey Bridge Players of Middle Tennessee!

Due to COVID-19, it is impossible to predict when we will be able to play bridge at the club again.  In the meantime, hundreds of our members and other bridge friends in Tennessee are playing bridge online using the Bridge Base Online (BBO) platform.  It is easy to use and even offers some benefits over playing in the club. The games are 18-boards, played at a rate of 7 minutes/board, lasting approximately 2 hours, and they award ACBL black master points. We so appreciate the support that our players have given to the VBC virtual games.  Your participation helps to keep our bridge players connected with each other, as well as helping us pay our bills during this time that the VBC is closed for face-to-face bridge. 

For more information, read the News page.

Important Message from the VBC Board of Directors About the Coronavirus

No Firm Date Yet for VBC Reopening

As previously announced, the VBC Board of Directors made the difficult decision to suspend operations at least until March 30th.  Unfortunately, this date is no longer viable.  We are getting guidance from several different sources, as follows:

  • Nashville Mayor, John Cooper, has issued an order requiring all non-essential businesses to close at least until April 6th.
  • Tennessee Governor Bill Lee has asked all Tennessee public schools to remain closed at least until April 24th.
  • The ACBL has given guidance to duplicate club owners and managers to remain closed until at least May 11th.

We are carefully monitoring the guidance of the Center for Disease Control and the various government entities, and we will make the decision to reopen when they again sanction group gatherings and when it seems wise for our membership.

If you plan to play Bridge Base Online (BBO), and would like to know the BBO User ID's for other VBC members, you may refer to the VBC BBO Report, listed in the Members Only section of this website.  If you would like to have your BBO User ID added to the list, please email it to the webmaster, Rees Mitchell

Vanderbilt Bridge Club
Vanderbilt Bridge Club

The Vanderbilt Bridge Center is a member owned duplicate bridge club named for Harold S. Vanderbilt, the man credited with inventing contract bridge in the mid-1920s. The center is located west of downtown Nashville and hosts 17 games weekly, including eight limited masterpoint games for new and intermediate players. All sessions are open to members and non members alike. Day and evening bridge classes are also available.

As you may have noticed, your pair's pictures are now displayed when you view your results.  If you click on your opponents names, you will see their pictures too.  We also have an online pictorial directory of 426 of our members and pictures may be viewed at the Members Only screen.  If you don't have a picture on file (VBC Picture Needed - updated 2/28/18) and you would like it to be or if you don't like the picture that is posted, you have several options to add one.  If you already have a digital picture, you may send it to our webmaster, Rees Mitchell.  If you don't have a digital picture and know someone with a digital camera or smartphone, you can have a picture made and email or text it to Rees.  You could also ask one of the directors to take a picture of you.  The final option is you can send a hardcopy picture to Rees.  His address is in the phone directory, which may be viewed on the Members Only part of the website.  

Pictures help us get to know the names of other members of the club and make it a more enjoyable experience.  We hope you will choose to participate.  If you do not want to have a picture published, please let Rees know and he will add your name to the do not publish list.

Here is a sample from a recent game featuring Coley McGinnis and Linda Hanson.
