Welcome to Great Bay bridge!  Games start at 10:30 am (please be seated at your table by 10:20 am).  We end by 2:30 pm with a :20 lunch break at noon. We charge players $7 to play. Our Great Bay SCHEDULE has regular special games (~ extra masterpoints) and games with lots of fun. The schedule of all N.H. bridge events for 2024 displays on the NHBA web site www.nhbridge.com 

Come visit and play with us!

NOTE: we cancel games via EMAIL from the Club Manager when weather is too inclement for play. 
Make sure you are on our Club mailing list (if you receive our Weekly results mails, you are!)

FRIDAY GAMES were added for 2024 when the Senior Center closes on Mondays for Federal and State holidays

  Please come and enjoy a break from "Monday" bridge!

===============================================

Need a partner for the next game?

We occasionally send someone home today because that person showed up without a partner and other singles are already paired. We do not offer a standby player and the ACBL heavily discourages playing directors for games larger over 16 tables.  Furthermore: we never create a half-table using a playing Director.

Partnership Desk thru June 17th

CALL Betty Brewster 603.498.3729

Anyone needing a partner must contact Betty Brewster until June 17th. 


Please call one or two days before the day of the game ... it is possible there are partners available when you call early.  Give it a try!  But on the day of the game?  We have no standbys and you may not play! 

Restarting June 24th:  we are back to texting the Club Manager ahead of time, preferably several days ahead. The Club will try to find you a partner in your experience range so you know you will be able to play when you come. The Club Manager phone and email:  substickers@gmail.com  603-609-8109

===============================================

On first Mondays in April, June, August, and October we serve complimentary PIZZA!! PIZZA!!

===============================================

We salute Betty Brewster on the occasion of the presentation of the Leroy M. Lake Award by NHBA Officer, Lucia Carlisle at our May 8th club game in Portsmouth, citing  Betty's "...involvement with the distribution of funds from online games to the NH clubs ... during the pandemic" and "...superior behavior and gracious presence at the bridge table in the performance of the many tasks at the Great Bay Bridge Club.""
