The Cairns Bridge Club was founded in 1972. It now has over 190 members and plays in its own air-conditioned club house. Players of all levels and experience are welcome.
The Club maintains an extensive library, runs teaching classes and encourages an interest in administration and directing.
The Club is affiliated with the Australian Bridge Federation and participates in the masterpoint scheme. Players achieve rankings according to their achievements at the table. The ABF provides a subsidy for a North Queensland team to play in the final in Tweed Heads of the Grand National Open Teams.
The Queensland Bridge Association provides subsidies for North Queensland players to attend the State Pairs and Teams Championships in Brisbane. The QBA 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.
