Our club holds a duplicate bridge game every Tuesday evening at 6:30 pm.

In each game, we play between 24 to 27 hands. The entire session takes approximately 3 hours. We use Bridgemates to enter results, so final standings are available the minute the last table finishes (and preliminary results as the last round starts). You can use the Bridgemate app to see results live during the session.

Our games are conducted under ACBL rules and top finishers are eligible for ACBL masterpoints.

Players should be aware of Bridge etiquette and protocol.

The Club operates under the ACBL's Zero Tolerance Policy, meaning anything that may interfere with the enjoyment of the game for other players will incur penalties, either point penalties or suspensions.

thecommongame We play

With The Common Game, we play the same hands as many clubs in North America. You can then go to the site, get overall winners and see analysis on your bidding and play. Plus, you might find expert write ups on some hands.

If you are completely new to bridge, see our information for new players here.

For those who have already learned the basics of playing bridge, be assured that we welcome players of all skill levels.

If you have played bridge only in social situations, you will find that duplicate bridge has differences in some of the rules, scoring, and even in the equipment and tools used at the table. This can all be picked up in a few minutes (but feel free to read a detailed explanation. You are also welcome to attend as an observer.

If you would like to play and do not have a partner, contact us at

with as much notice as possible. Include (1) an estimate of your skill level (2) the systems you can play and (3) the best ways for a potential partner to contact you. We cannot guarantee a match, but we will do our best.

Our club is not only for the University of Toronto. Players from the community are welcome. Games are held year-round, including the summer months. Games are not held on major holidays.

Our games are a great value when compared with typical card fees for ACBL games around the city. See our membership details here.
