Kia Ora and Haere Mai!
Welcome to the Rotorua Bridge Club’s website. Formed in 1955, Rotorua Bridge Club is one of the strongest bridge clubs in the region, with about 150 members ranging from novices to grandmasters.
The club is situated not far from town, in Neil Hunt Park, on Tarawera Rd, just near the Te Ngae roundabout. (See map)
If you've never played bridge and are interested in learning, here is your chance!
See the beginners’ page for more information about learning bridge.
There are four playing sessions each week – on Monday afternoons, Wednesday and Thursday evenings and Friday mornings.
Visitors are always very welcome to all sessions, with the exception of team competitions, where it is often not possible to fit in an extra pair. If you’re in Rotorua alone and would like a partner, please contact a partnership steward – we can nearly always find you someone to play with. Most members use the Acol system, but Standard American is also played by some.
From this Friday there is a change to the start time for the Friday BYO Lunch session. It will be reverting to the original start time of 10.30am. The drop-in bridge is unchanged.
