Welcome to Arana Bridge Club
... where visitors, beginners, members and guests are always welcome.
At present, some COVID-19 restrictions apply. Temperatures will be checked. Hand sanitising & social distancing apply.
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 and hand records 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. Social Bridge is on Thursday afternoon. Monday afternoon Novice Bridge (< 50 MPs) remains suspended due to COVID-19.
