Visit Us

The Wellington Bridge Club is the largest bridge club in Wellington, offering quality bridge in spacious surroundings. The club rooms are situated at 17 Tinakori Road, Thorndon. While we have many grand masters and a number of current and past international players among our members, we offer sessions that are enjoyed by players at all levels. 

The club particularly encourages new players and our youth members through our programme of instruction, buddying and mentoring and reduced/zero membership fees for youth members.

We particularly welcome visitors. We can arrange for a partner for you if you contact us in advance.

You may play on any night. However, you are likely to get most enjoyment and satisfaction from playing with people at a similar level to yourself. The three face to face playing nights, while broadly streamed, are designed to provide the flexibility to encourage inter-grade play for the benefit of players. Friday afternoons are more social and are open to all members.
