Proudly celebrating 90 years of bridge and friendship.
The South Australian Bridge association was formed in 1933 with a small group of members and it moved around to several different venues in the city until in 1971 our current premises was bought. The annexe was built in the late 70s and the lounge, bar area in the front was added in the 90s. Having weathered the trials of almost a century, it seems fitting to celebrate our 90 years of bridge and friendship.

Bridge - A Game for Life
Playing bridge has many benefits for people of all ages, including millennials. According to a study by the University of Stirling, Scotland, playing bridge keeps people smarter, happier, and more social into old age. The study also indicated that people who play bridge have higher levels of well-being than those who don’t.
Many respondents indicated that playing bridge brought benefits to them personally in the form of the game having a competitive element, facilitating socialising with friends, and – most commonly – being mentally stimulating and deriving enjoyment from the activity.
Bridge’s intricacies make it particularly appealing for those who want to sharpen acuity with mental gymnastics. A study in 2000 at the University of California, Berkeley, found strong evidence that an area in the brain used in playing bridge stimulates the immune system.
