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)

Learn Bridge
If you've never played bridge and are interested in learning, Rotorua Bridge Club runs a series of lessons each year. See the beginners’ page for more information about learning bridge. Click here to find out what players enjoy most about bridge.

Playing Sessions
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.


Rotorua Open 5A

Sponsored by Dawsons Insurance.
This tournament will be played face to face on Saturday, 10 June 2023. It is the most prestigious tournament we run and the oldest. Tournament details here. We will be looking for helpers closer to the time but if you would to volunteer let one of the committee know ahead of time.

Advanced Lessons

Alan Dick will be conducting a series of advanced lessons later in the year. These are intended for players who are confident players but feel that they are ready to add a bit more into their systems. Come with your favourite partner and improve your play and defense. Great for those who are keen to go to more Tournaments. Dates will be advised shortly.
