Whether your goal is advancing to the next rank or playing in friendly competitive bridge games, the Newtown Bridge Club has the game for you! All games are stratified and as many extra point games as allowed by the ACBL are scheduled to provide our players opportunities to earn masterpoints. “Under 21” sections are offered at all games for players with 0-20 masterpoints.
Games are played on Mondays at 1pm, Tuesdays at 10am and 7pm and Wednesdays at 10am at the Hawleyville Volunteer Fire Station, 0.3 mile north of I-84 exit 9, at 34 Hawleyville Road (Route 25), Newtown CT.
New players are welcome.
Make Tuesday Your Bridge Night!
Newtown Bridge Bits, a regular Tuesday evening feature, starts at 6:30 pm. Bridge Bits are pregame mini-lessons designed to sharpen wits and improve winning ways for players with social or club bridge experience.
After the mini-lesson, players have a choice of games at 7pm – “under 21” for players new to club bridge and open pairs for more experienced players. Refreshments are provided. Game fee is $9 per person ($7 for members); there is no additional charge for Bridge Bits mini-lessons.
Stress-Free Duplicate Bridge
“Under 21” sections for players with 0-20 masterpoints are offered at all games. In an Under 21 section, players compete with their peers at a relaxed pace in a 2-hour game and earn masterpoints. It's a perfect game for social bridge players who would like to try duplicate as well as newer players who want to play with others at the same level. You're welcome to invite your favorite partner to join you in an Under 21 game.

Will it snow this winter?
In the event of inclement weather, the club will decide as early as possible whether to cancel or delay games. The club's decision to hold games is independent of any school closing schedule. When a game is canceled or delayed, an alert will be posted on this website at least 2 hours before the normal start time. If you're in doubt about a game schedule, please check this website or call 203-733-8525.
Players can sign up for winter games at the club, by using the Partnership Desk or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. If a game is canceled unexpectedly (weather, etc.), the players who signed up will be notified.
If you decide at the last minute to play and didn't sign-up, please come to the game - walk-in pairs are always welcome.
