Edmond Town Hall, new home of Newtown Bridge Club
Edmond Town Hall

We've moved! Newtown Bridge Club is now in the Alexandria Room on the second (top) floor of Edmond Town Hall, 45 Main Street, Newtown CT.

After 7 years at the fire house, we were starting to burst at the seams. We're still the same friendly bridge club – just with more tables.

Game times: 1:00 pm Mondays
  10:00 am Tuesdays
  7:00 pm Tuesdays
  10:00 am Wednesdays

New players are invited to join us anytime.

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.

North American Pairs (NAP), scheduled in June, July and August, award 50/50 red/black masterpoints. Games are open to all players; NLM sections Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. Click here for information about 2015 NAP games.
