Welcome to the Melbourne Bridge Centre
The Melbourne Bridge Centre is the oldest private Bridge Club in Victoria and is one of the largest. The Clubrooms are spacious and have comfortable playing room for up to 20 tables.
Ian and Sandra Mansell are the Directors along with assistance from Sally Foster, Darcy Funnell, and Rex Fox.
Ian and Sandra teach beginners how to play bridge with structured lessons
and also follow on with a supervised play program for beginners and intermediate players conducted
through the Kew School of Bridge.
Competitive duplicate bridge sessions are also provided for more experienced players.
Our aim is for players to enjoy their Bridge at Melbourne Bridge Club. Visitors and new members are always
welcome. A partner will always be provided if necessary, so do come along and experience the friendship
of the club.
Sandra, Ian and our staff look forward to seeing you.
