NAPLES BRIDGE CENTER
NAPLES BRIDGE CENTER

Welcome to the Premier Bridge Club in Naples, Florida

The Naples Bridge Center has a long history of serving the bridge-playing community with games and education, dating back to 1970. As a member-owned, non-profit organization it provides a premier environment for both learning and playing bridge. Visitors are always welcome.  Classes are constantly being offered, and there are multiple games every day!

All games are sanctioned by the American Contract Bridge League (ACBL) and directed by a staff of professionals.  Easily reached from all areas of Collier County, the NBC features the nicest playing conditions in Southwest Florida.  We plan to expand both the parking and the building in 2016 and 2017!

We are located at 5865 Golden Gate Parkway Naples, FL. 34116, just off I-75 at exit 105 and less than five miles from US 41.

Special games

 

 MARCH/APRIL SPECIAL GAMES

 

 

                      

ACBL-WIDE SENIOR PAIRS!

Monday, March 27th  (1PM)  

♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦  

SPECIAL SUNDAY TEAM GAMES!

On 3/26 AND 4/30, we will hold our monthly "Eight is Enough" team game.  "A" players are three "points", "B" players are two "points", and "C" players are one "point".  Teams of four can have no more than eight player points per team, which makes for some interesting mixes! This is a fun and well-attended event.

On 4/2, the game will be "handicapped", which means that the lower-ranking team in each match receives an advantage.  This is always fun and exciting.

On 4/9 and 4/16, the team games will be part of our "CHARITY MONTH SPECTACULAR" -- extra points, no extra money, but a portion of every entry is donated to the ACBLs National Charity!

((On 4/23, we will hold our annual Spring Party -- it will not be a team game and no game will be held at the club on this day.)) 

                 

 APRIL IS "CHARITY SPECTACULAR" MONTH!

Each game in April (except chat games) is a CHARITY (club championship) game.   Extra points, overall winners, but no extra money!  The morning, evening, and Sunday games will donate money to the ACBL's Charity Foundation, which does some amazing work.  The afternoon games will donate to local charities as chosen by our Board of Governors.  Play bridge, earn more points, and know that your club, with your participation, will donate thousands of dollars this month to charities!

WE HAVE A FACEBOOK PAGE! CLICK HERE TO OPEN IT!

Our facebook page is new, and there isn't much on it yet.

I will use it for news and occasional announcements.  We can also use it to discuss interesting hands and bidding, and anything else bridge related.  We will NOT use it for political discussions, gossip, etc.  :-)   I think everyone understands why.  

I would especially love it if some of you can post some pictures and bridge news on the site.

If you want to use the facebook page to ask about a hand, I will try to answer as often as time permits.  Perhaps some of out other experienced players will help out, as well.
