Welcome to Berwick-upon-Tweed Bridge Club

Berwick-upon-Tweed Bridge Club is affiliated to the Scottish Bridge Union, and plays in the East District. It has two teams which play in the East District League.

The club meets twice a week, on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, from September to May. Play starts promptly at 7.15pm, so players should be there no later than 7.05pm. 

Bridge during the summer starts on Thursday 24 May and then on every Thursday for the rest of the summer until the end of August. Summer bridge is open to all players regardless of standard, although less experienced players are particularly welcome. Each evening will start at 7pm, so players are advised to get there by 6.45pm especially if you do not have a partner.

Visitors

Visitors are very welcome - if you need a partner, or teammates on team nights, contact Christine McCreath on 01289 386302 or by email.
