Welcome to Arana Bridge Club
... where visitors, beginners, members and guests are always welcome.
Our modern air-conditioned (set to 24C, please dress accordingly) club house located in the Ferny Grove Sportfields in Tramway Street at Ferny Grove in north-west Brisbane comfortably accommodates 40 tables. Ample parking and disabled access are available.
Currently, we have around 250 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.
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.
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 heats of the GNOT (gold points) are on Fri 20 & 27 Mar and 3 April.
FRANCIS beats Hoenig & Dawson to win the Arana Swiss Teams; LEE wins B; KOSTER wins C.
A survey of members suggested changing the FRIDAY session times to 9:30 to 1:30 with NO lunch break. A 2 month trial of the new times commences Friday 17 April.
