Back To The Clubs

We're really close to getting back to face-to-face bridge, even though many of those faces will be masked.  While we do appreciate Bridge Base helping us get through the past 12+ months, it's not the same as seeing our friends at the club.  So here's what we can look forward to.

Atlanta Duplicate Bridge Center

Dan is currently looking for a new location.  We'll send an update when that occurs.

  • Opening Monday, May 10.  Open Games Monday at 11am  Wednesday at noon, Friday at 11am.  0-750 Tuesday at 11am and Thursday at noon

  • Opening Monday May 3. Games Monday, Wednesday, Friday at 11am
  • Proof of vaccination required.  Masks optional in playing area but required outside of it.

The above is just the current plan.  We're sure there will be changes as the clubs work theirr way back to normal.

Clubs will continue online games at BBO for the foreseeable future. This may just be transitional but if there is sufficient interest they could go on indefinitely.

There are a few other club games in the area but we limited this to those that have multiple games per week.  You can find info on all clubs on our web site at

If you have questions, you can contact each club directly.  You can find links to their web sites and contact information at

We're looking forward to seeing all of you soon.
