Ballarat Bridge Club (BBC) is the only bridge club in the Ballarat Region. Established in 1985, it is affiliated with Bridge Victoria (BV) and the Australian Bridge Federation (ABF), under whose guidelines it operates. BBC has approximately 85 members and offers duplicate sessions Thursday and Saturday afternoons. It provides a friendly and competitive environment for all players.
Do the names Charles Goren and John Gerber mean anything to you? If you are a bridge player the names might ring a few bells. Follow the link to watch 'Championship Bridge', a 1950's US TV show featuring some very well known names. The show covers a rubber of bridge played by very accomplished bridge players. All aspects of play are explained and analysed. The first show features Chico Marx!
The best way to improve your bridge game is to play. However, it is also useful to take some lessons. Ballarat Bridge Club offers lessons at specific times in the year. These are held at the bridge club and our experienced teachers will teach you the basics.
We also hold a bridge session each Tuesday afternoon that is informal and allows new players the opportunity to get help from more experienced players.
The club has a library of bridge books that are available to members of the club
