The St Louis Bridge Center will be participating in the Longest Day on Wednesday June 21. For the past several years, bridge clubs throughout the country have contributed to the Alzheimer’s Association through the Longest Day. The St Louis Bridge Center has been one of the top clubs nationally contributing to this worthwhile cause. Last year we raised over $42,000 for this important cause through the generosity of our membership. We hope that you will participate in the following activities that we will be offering this year:

  • Play bridge in one or more of the games on Wednesday June 21. Sanctioned games will be held at 9:00 AM, 1PM and 6PM. Social players are also welcome. All proceeds will be contributed to the Alzheimer’s Association.
  • Purchase raffle tickets for a wonderful dinner for 4 at Annie Gunn’s.
  • Bid on the great auction items located through the bridge center. Fabulous items have been donated including Cardinal tickets, parties, baskets and wonderful travel options.

We want to thank the members of the St Louis Bridge Center for both their generous past support and their continued support of the Alzheimer’s Association. We hope that one day Alzheimer’s will be eradicated. - Linda Powers and Jane Ettelson co-chairs of the Longest Day.

Zero Tolerance Policy

Our Board of Directors strongly believe that all experiences at St. Louis Bridge Center should be positive and friendly. As such, we have addopted a "Zero Tolerance" Policy that is strictly enforced at all games. Click here to see the policy.


The Common Game

SLBC is affiliated with "The Common Game". This program allows players to compare scores among our club with those who have played the hand at clubs around the country. Separately, analysis of the bid and play of certain hands are provided each day. Click here to learn more.

Click the link on the left "Results - Common Game" to view game results.


Swing Players Needed

This program is important to allow us to always guarantee a partner for players that show up without a partner. You can pick a day of the week, or certain days where you agree to come to a game and be a swing player if needed. If you play that day, you play for FREE. If you aren’t needed, you receive a FREE game pass for another day. So you are helping the Center AND earning a free game regardless of whether you play that day or not.


Free Training Lessons

We have a section on our website for local pros and teachers to publish bridge lessons for the benefit of our members. You can click on the link on the left to access these lessons. We encourage all local pros and teachers to consider submitting lessons for publishing on behalf of our members.

St. Louis Bridge Center is dedicated to teaching and growing the game of bridge in the St. Louis community. This is an excellent opportunity for experienced bridge members to share their knowledge.


Game Scrip

Remember to buy game scrip! They are available in packs of 10 for $90. Each scrip is redeemable for admission to any regularly priced game. We hope you find this a much more efficient way to pay for games.


Gift Certificates

These are perfect gifts for your bridge-playing friends & family. Gift certificates available for: memberships, games, and training programs. Please stop by the front desk to purchase.
