About Bridge

Contract Bridge was invented in the 1920’s, and in the following decades became very popular. Bridge currently occupies a position of great prestige, and is more comprehensibly organized than any other card game. There are clubs, tournaments and championships throughout the world.

Rubber Bridge

This is the basic form of contract bridge, played by four players. Informal, social bridge games are often played this way, and Rubber Bridge is played in clubs for money.

Men

  • Mondays & Fridays (except the last Friday which is Duplicate).
  • Time: 13:15
  • Fee R 5.00 for members.

Women (with partner)

  • Time: 13:15

Duplicate Bridge

This is the game normally played in clubs, tournaments and matches. The game is basically the same but having the same deals replayed with different sets of players reduces the luck element. At least eight players are required for this. There are some significant differences in the scoring.
