Located in Vero Beach Florida, the Vero Beach Bridge Center is a member-owned bridge club. We host daily bridge games, duplicate bridge tournaments, bridge classes for all levels, celebrity speakers, and student games for new players which are all sanctioned by the American Contract Bridge League. In fact, the size of our club allows us to hold many restricted games for up and coming players, no need to swim with the sharks!
Pre-dealt boards for pair games mean no shuffling and hand records are available after each game, whether for the daily bridge play or on-site duplicate bridge tournaments. The use of Bridgemate II allows results to be ready immediately following the game.
We have one of the best duplicate bridge clubs in Florida, if not the nation.
We are currently ranked at #4 in North America for 2017 based on the number of tables of bridge played thus far!
Here you will find a lot of good material for players of all levels.

Vu-Bridge's U.S. Home Page
Another subscription site. Their interface is used by many top teachers in the field.
You may have noticed that any hand you play at the club may be replayed at home. To access this feature, go to results for that day and then select yours (or someone else's for that matter!) and when the scores and the hand record pop up, under the hand record you will see a button that says play it again. Click on it. This works great for any game but you can also go direct to their website if you want to be able to load hands into their service.
This is a subscription site, I must say though they do a good job and the interface is a pleasure.
You can check out sample material before subscribing.
Lots of free articles
Feel free to read the home page. Most of the good stuff, including the chance to play 80 "Early learning" hands is under ACTIVITIES, top center of the page.
