Sun Lakes Duplicate Bridge Open to RRAZ Players

Winter season is fully underway and the bridge club is really going strong! If you have been thinking about joining a bridge group, now is the time to do it. There is a place for everyone in the Sun Lakes Duplicate Bridge Club. For general and specific information and questions about the bridge club, contact Eileen Utter at 480-375-1221 or visit the club website at bridgewebs.com/sunlakes. Games are held at Risen Savior Lutheran Church, 23914 S. Alma School Road, Chandler. For the safety of our players, everyone is required to show proof of vaccination and sign a liability waiver form at first attendance. Cost for each game is $7 per game for members and $8 for nonmembers. Annual membership is only $10.

We have a teaching game on Thursday mornings at 8:30 a.m., and games by skill level on three weekday afternoons and Saturday mornings at 9 a.m. Weekday games are at 1:30 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays. Plan to arrive 30 minutes prior to game time to buy your entry and receive a table assignment. A partner is required for all games except the Thursday morning teaching game. Partnership assistance is available by emailing [email protected]

The Thursday morning teaching game is designed to help introduce new players to the game of bridge and to refresh those who have not played in years. A short lesson is given each week and then you will play bridge hands that have been pre-set to reinforce the points of the lesson. Instructors are available in the room to assist with bidding questions and help the players at each table. Players are encouraged to attend with or without a specific partner. Partners can be arranged by the director. Duplicate bridge masterpoints are earned by teams who place in each game. Contact Maria Davis at [email protected] for more information about the Thursday morning game.

New members and guest players are always welcome. Sun Lakes Bridge Club strives to be the friendliest game in the valley. Come enjoy the fellowship, the friendship, and the competition of the Sun Lakes Bridge Club!
