Newtown Bridge Club meets in the Alexandria Room on the second (top) floor of Edmond Town Hall, 45 Main Street, Newtown CT.
New players are invited to join us anytime. Game fee is $10 per person ($8 for members).
Exclusively for players who are not Life Masters and have fewer than 500 MPs: Tuesday and Wednesday morning games offer a separate NLM section for four or more tables.
Newcomer Bridge – Mondays at 12:30 pm
Newtown Bridge Club hosts a weekly newcomer game for players with 0-20 masterpoints on Mondays at 12:30 pm called “Under 21”. At the Under 21 games players have:
- Opportunity to meet others who enjoy playing bridge.
- Bridgemate terminals at the table for automatic scoring. No need to worry about scoring on paper travelers.
- Hand records after the game that show the North, East, South and West hands for all the boards played. Online results show what the other tables, including the Open section, did on the same hands – contracts, results and opening leads. A great learning tool.
- A director or instructor available for a 20-minute question and answer session after the game.
- Coffee, tea and snacks.
- Masterpoint awards.
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. The game lasts about 3 hours, finishing by 3:30pm. Game fee is $10 per person ($8 for Newtown Bridge Club members). Players may come with partners or alone - partners are guaranteed.
Make Tuesday Your Bridge Night!
The Tuesday evening game starts promptly at 7pm and ends before 10pm; partners are available for walk-in players (Tuesday evenings only.)
Newtown Bridge Bits, a regular Tuesday evening feature, starts after 6:30 pm. Bridge Bits are mini-lessons designed to sharpen wits and improve winning ways.
Refreshments are provided. There is no additional charge for Bridge Bits mini-lessons.
