ABOUT US

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Aces and Cavendish Bridge Clubs offer warm and welcoming environment for
players of all levels. A friendly atmosphere combined with a
pleasant professional staff to provide maximum enjoyment for
bridge players.  Whether you take lessons or play in a duplicate
game, you will find that all of our activities
are like spending the afternoon with your dearest friends — doing
something you enjoy with people you like. We
provide the entertainment, a comfortable atmosphere, and
refreshments to ensure that you
have a good time.

Most of our lessons are geared for beginning and intermediate
students who want to learn
how to play and enjoy this wonderful game without having to get
a Ph.D. in bridge.
However, we do offer advanced-intermediate lessons for those
who want to progress into
serious bridge.
Aces and Cavendish Bridge Clubs are a
place to learn and play, and have a good time while doing it.
