Welcome to Arana Bridge Club
... where visitors, beginners, members and guests are always welcome.
Covid: All attendees must comply with QLD HEALTH regulations, QBA and Arana COVID-Safe protocols.
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 200 home members and 70 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), Thursday afternoon, Friday (am) and Saturday afternoon.
Table fees at regular sessions are $6.00 for members and $7.50 for visitors. Session winners receive a free game voucher which is awarded to the outright and handicap winners on alternate weeks. Surchages may apply at special/ prizemoney events with no winning vouchers.
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.
