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.
Re-opening in Level 1
The Bridge Club committee very much hopes that you are all ‘champing at the bit’ to come back to in-person bridge. We met last night to discuss when and how to reopen the club rooms for play and resolved the following:
We will not open for bridge until Level 1 is reached. When it is reached, regular bridge will commence on the Monday afternoon following Level 1 commencement - at this stage likely to be 15 June.
We will confirm our start date after the Level 1 announcement is made on Monday 8 June.
