Welcome to Arana Bridge Club
... where visitors, beginners, members and guests are always welcome.
At present, sessions are restricted to Members Only and COVID-19 restrictions apply. Members should download & read the COVID requirements on our Documents page. The Health Declaration must be completed before entry.
Our modern air-conditioned (set to 24°C, please dress accordingly) club house located in the Ferny Grove Sportfields in Tramway Street at Ferny Grove in north-west Brisbane comfortably accommodates 36 tables. Ample parking and disabled access are available.
Currently, we have around 260 home members and 75 non-home members. We cater for all levels of experience with beginners' classes starting (usually) in March and July. Help with play is available after completing the lessons.
Bridge hands are computer dealt with personal scorers and hand records available at every session. With bridgemate scoring, results are available at the end of play, and on our web site shortly thereafter.
Normally, we play regular duplicate sessions on Monday (am, pm), Tuesday (am), Wednesday (am), Friday (am) and Saturday afternoon. Novice Bridge (< 50 MPs) is on Monday afternoon; Social Bridge is on Thursday afternoon. Current sessions are limited due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Table fees are $6.00 for members and $7.50 for visitors. Session winners (outright/handicap on alternate weeks) receive a free game voucher.
New members are always welcome - membership fee is just $15 per year (plus $16 QBA and $16 ABF affiliation fees if you're not already paying these through another club membership) and a once-only joining fee of $10.
Arana conducts two congresses per year: a one-day Swiss teams in February and a Swiss pairs & teams weekend in May/June.
Arana Club Pairs and Teams championships will now be played on Sat 3 and 10 October respectively.
Saturday afternoon sessions restart 19 September. Members only. COVID-19 restrictions apply.
Free bridge lessons start Sat 12 Sep.
Arana is now playing Mon, Wed and Fri at 9:30 am and Sat at 1:00 pm. Our 28 board BBO tournaments are 9:30 am Tue and 1:00 pm Sat.
