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)
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.

It is good to see so many coming along to these, and on 27 September and 4 October we will be covering play of the cards. Details on further lessons here.
