    For those unfamiliar with bridge, it may seem to belong to a large group of card games that are purely luck-based, require no skill and are played late at night during sleepovers or at school camps. Well, this couldn’t be further from the truth. While this may be true of the version of bridge played casually, which is also known as floating bridge, contract bridge is a unique blend of communication, strategy and sometimes calculated risk-taking that is offered by no other mind sport. This is what we, RI Bridge Club, are all about.

    A basic introduction to bridge: bridge is what is known as a trick-taking game. Each round, each person plays out a card in clockwise order, and the highest-valued card wins, and takes the trick. Joining our club will expose you to the vast and exciting world of contract bridge, and it will definitely be a decision you won’t regret.
