WELCOME to the Joondalup Bridge Club

Do you want to play bridge in a friendly club?

Do you want to learn how to play bridge?

We are a progressive club with over 300 members.

We have 5 STANDARD CLUB ('competition style') sessions and 2 ABRIDGED ('shorter social style') sessions each week that cater for a wide range of bridge abilities. See the SESSION TIMES box on this website.

We are located just off Marmion Avenue in Padbury.

Most of the information you need to know is on this website so Browse (best on a large device or tablet) and contact us if you need to know more. 



NEXT Series of Beginner Lessons:  February 2024

MONDAY EVENING from 7 - 10pm.

Volunteer Helpers are required - use SIGNUP to register. 

A modest up front charge of $60 covers all 9 beginner lessons. This is followed by several weeks of supervised practice sessions ($4 ea) to gain confidence and speed up your play b4 attending our regular sessions.  Each session includes a short break for tea, biscuits plus time to meet and socialize with other attendees.

You will receive an excellent Booklet: 'Bridge Notes for Beginners', a Book of Homework Exercises as well as a copy of Materials from each Lesson (Weekly)

Each lesson includes theory (broken up in small segments) of a BASIC BIDDING SYSTEM (ACOL with 5 card majors, weak no trumps, weak 2's). We then use worksheet exercises, guided by an experienced helper at each table, to practice bidding and play of up to 8 boards to consolidate what is taught in that lesson.

A copy of each Lessons Powerpoint slides, worksheet exercises, answers and practice hands are sent to all attendees each week.

You must commit to ATTEND ALL LESSONS,  REVISE ALL MATERIAL thoroughly WEEKLY and DO the HOMEWORK EXERCISES to gain maximum benefit from the lessons.  

It takes time and effort, perseverance and practice to become a good bridge player and is not for the faint hearted. It is not Kitchen Bridge!

There are not many opportunities to learn bridge in the northern suburbs. We only hold 2 series of the Beginner Lessons each year. Places are limited!   So you need to Register early.

Register via the SIGNUP box on this website.
