Bridge

The Gymkhana is happy to have inculcated the sport of bridge into its regular activities. Bridge Coaching is carried out by expert bridge players for members and their guests. We have also hosted the local leg of the World Bridge pairs Tournament. Bridge is a mind sport which is part of the International Mind Sports Association along with Chess and other games.  Bridge was included at the 2018 Asian Games, Indonesia and is also proposed in the 2022 Asian Games at China.  India has won a Gold medal and 2 bronze medals in bridge. Medal winners have been rewarded by the Government of the day and have had the privilege of meeting the Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi.  Bridge is part of School Games Federation and International University Games Federation.  This is part of the curriculum in many schools in Europe, the plan being to encourage young minds to think logically.  The WCG had a Pairs Bridge Tournament every week at 6.30pm prior to the lockdown. The Gymkhana has also conducted bridge classes for beginners and intermediate players to this wonderful sport.

The open pairs weekly bridge tournaments are held on Fridays.
