Welcome to Mackay Bridge Club.

Mackay Bridge Club is located in Mackay, Central Queensland. Mackay is on the Whitsunday Coast, and is one of the closest regional centres to the famous Whitsunday Islands of the Great Barrier Reef.

We run 7 sessions a week, including one supervised play session. We welcome all visitors to our club. If you're visiting our region and would like us to find you a partner, call our partner organiser.

Mackay Bridge Club is also host once every three years to the Barrier Reef Congress. This event alternates among Mackay, Townsville and Cairns and is next scheduled for Mackay in 2016. This is a gold-point event, attracting players from all over Australia and overseas.

History

The Mackay Contract Bridge Club was founded in 1965 and incorporated on the 10th June, 1986. We are a non-profit organization that relies on its membership for its financial support through its annual membership levy and table fees . We welcome players of all levels and experience.

The Club is air conditioned and maintains a library, runs teaching classes and encourages an interest in administration and directing of competitive events.

The Club is affiliated with the Australian Bridge Federation and participates in the Master Point scheme. Players obtain higher rankings according to their achievements at the table. The ABF provides a subsidy for a Central Queensland team to play in the final in Tweed Heads of the Grand National Open Teams.

The Queensland Bridge Association provides subsidies for Central Queensland players to attend the State Pairs and Teams Championships in Brisbane, and also subsidises visits by Queensland and International bridge teachers and directors.

The Club relies on the voluntary efforts of its members for all administration, housekeeping, scoring and directing.
