We Welcome All Players

Mt Albert Bridge Club is affiliated to the New Zealand Bridge Association. We offer an education program for beginner through to intermediate players, and we welcome those wanting to learn bridge, those wanting to improve their game and all players seeking to enjoy a good competitive game.

You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.

Albert Einstein

Bridge is such a sensational game that I wouldn’t mind being in jail if I had three cellmates who were decent players and who were willing to keep the game going 24 hours a day.

Warren Buffet

Many games provide fun, but Bridge grips you. It exercises your mind. Your mind can rust, you know, but Bridge prevents the rust from forming.
