club

"Vasa Bridgeklubb r.f." has been in the association register since 1943 and is thereby one of the older clubs in Finland. We had 85 members at the end of year 2018. We have a good bridge library.

We have arranged national tournaments, such as the 5-day  Eastern Bridge tournament, since 2015. Look for "Vaasan Pääsiäisbridge" annually in the result list on Suomen Bridgeliitto home page.

Welcome to drop by, when you see that we have some kind of activities here or somewhere else. Please contact a person in the board for more information - link at the bottom of this page.

Our new Internet pages were published 2018-01-23. We also have a Facebook page. We are located on the 2nd floor at Silmukkatie 21, above "Laakeri-Center". Our activities consists of Bridge as a social card game. We play "Summer bridge" at other locations during the summer months.

activities

We have activities up to 4 days/week. We usually play 24 deals, without having the screens mounted onto the tables. "Match points" results, with differentiation, are used for the majority of the games. It means that your point result is changed to indicate % of the best result played in each deal

Our A-advertisement rack is sometimes outside, when we have some activities going on. If not, here are the times when we have activities. The table below might not be accurate every week. Activities might be left out due to holidays or some other "overlapping" arrangement.
