About us

Westside Bridge Academy is central and west Houston's premier venue for duplicate bridge instruction and play.

We have open games every day and I/N games several times each week - see the schedule to the left for details.

We are a friendly and welcoming place for you to play.

We have the nicest directors and players!

What we do

  • You get an individual summary at the end of the game so you can easily check your scores!
  • You get an individual summary emailed to you only a few minutes after the game!
  • We use "The Common Game"; for details click below.
  • We offer complimentary snacks, coffee, and tea!
  • We have a full schedule of classes!

The Common Game

  • We play the same hands as hundreds of other clubs across the US and Canada.
  • You see your results compared with everyone who played the hand.
  • The results often come with expert commentary.
  • Results are match-pointed across the entire field - hundreds of tables!
  • Monthly winners are compiled and reported.

Life Master Party for Vivian Cyprus!

  • Wednesday, February 25th!
  • Details to follow, but reserve the date!

Guaranteed Partner Program

The Ambassador Program is now active!

You can show up without a partner and be guaranteed someone to play with for every session for which we have a volunteer! At this point we are only missing Ambassadors for:

  • The third and fifth Monday 299r games at 7:00.
  • The first, fourth and fifth Friday 99r games at 10:30.

All the rest are filled, if you get to the Academy at least 15 minutes before game time we will guarantee you a partner. 

We still need volunteers for those slots - only 5 more holes to fill. If you haven't already volunteered, please consider doing so - it's a great deal for bridge and for you! For the details, see the Guaranteed Partners page by clicking on the menu to the left.

Class Schedule Posted!

A calendar showing upcoming classes has been added; to see it click on Class Schedule on the menu to the left.

Good news - We have added three new teachers:  Joyce Ryan will be  teaching two classes starting in April, and starting in March Pat Levy and Kay Johnson will be having Supevised Play on Thursday mornings 10:30!

For the details, click on Class Schedule to the left.

Sunday Afternoon Game

The Sunday afternoon game will restart on February 15th. The start time will change on that date to 1:00 PM!

If you need a partner, call Anna Marlatt at (713) 464-8344 or email her at rogannamarlatt@sbcglobal.net.

As an added bonus, in the month of February, if you play on Sunday afternoon, you can play in the barometer game on the following Thursday night for half price! This also works in reverse - if you play on Thursday night, you can play in the following Sunday afternoon game for half price!

Thank you to all of our wonderful players!
