You can see how your results stack up against hundreds of other pairs, read expert hand analysis and “Kibitz the Pros.”


We especially encourage newcomers and people visiting the area to come play duplicate bridge with us.


We care about each other and our greater community.  In addition to enjoying duplicate bridge games with our friends, we try to be good community citizens through club outreach and charity.
