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.
We will be offering two options for bridge lessons this year:
Wednesdays 7.00 - 9.30pm beginning 2 September
Fridays 10.00am – 12.30pm beginning 4 September.
Cost is $60 for 12 lessons and includes summer bridge play over 2020/2021, and if you bring a friend to create your own partnership it is $100 for 2 people.
Please contact Val 07 347 1713 or Marie 027 427 5727 to sign up or for more information.
If you know of anyone who may be interested in learning bridge please spread the word – word of mouth is often the best marketing tool for attracting new players.
It is heartening to see so many people back playing bridge at the club. This is encouraging for our upcoming events that we hope you will be enthusiastic about participating in. More details of Bay of Plenty Interclub Teams, Ib Thulin and other events here
