Welcome to Kenmore Bridge Club.
During the last week in February the Gold Coast Bridge Congress, with Tournament Director Theresa Tully, hosted 2,300 bridge players from across the world. On Friday there was a large contingent of Kenmore Club members playing in the Novice event.
Located at the refurbished Kenmore Community Centre (98 Brookfield Road, Kenmore Hills) in the Western Suburbs, Kenmore Bridge Club Inc. opened as a not for profit, volunteer, community based organisation on Wednesday 16th March 2011; fully affiliated with the Australian Bridge Federation and the Queensland Bridge Association.
Bridge hands are computer dealt and hand records available at every session. Bridgemates are used for electronic scoring with results available at the end of play on our website.
We now have a membership of over 400, and conduct duplicate sessions six days a week and supervised duplicate twice a week.
We hold beginners' classes and intermediate lessons throughout the year. The beginners' classes are followed up with supervised duplicate (help with play) sessions run by Queensland and Australian representative, Theresa Tully.
The idea for a club was talked about between Neil Sadler and Tim Runting while holidaying at Caloundra in 2010, both recognized the need for a new Bridge club in the Chapel Hill/Kenmore/Brookfield region.
On his return, Tim discussed the idea with Theresa Tully and QBA Manager, Kim Ellaway, both of whom put their full support behind the idea and an informal meeting was held in December 2010 to gauge interest in a new club. Further meetings in January 2011 realised more players seeking a club of their own in the Kenmore area.
As a result of this interest Tim Runting moved to obtain Affiliation with the QBA and ABF and organised for a Constitution to be written.
This resulted in the first General Meeting held at the current playing premises on Wednesday 9th March 2011 when over 30 people attended, Office Bearers were voted in and the club was officially formed.
