Come Play at Bridge Haven

Are you interested in getting back to face-to-face bridge? Do you miss the social part of the bridge game? Maybe you just want to get out of the house and go somewhere fun. Come visit us at Bridge Haven at 10421 St. Charles Rock Road, St. Ann MO 63074. This became our address in April of 2019. We have Monday, Wednesday, Friday 10:30 a.m. games each day and the Saturday "Lucky 7" SWISS Team game starting at noon. As you all know, the "Lucky 7" game is one of our most favorite games.

Bridge Haven is dedicated to keeping the play as safe as possible. We limit the game sizes (sizes are subject to change). We keep social distancing in place by spreading out the tables. We limit the use of the card decks so no set is used two days in a row. We have hand sanitizer available at several stations. We remind players if you don’t feel well, please stay home.

If you need more information, please contact Barbara on her cell=314-374-6027 or at home=314-822-9454. Barbara can answer your questions about the game size or get you signed up for a game.

Remember that bridge has been a social game. Many of us got our interest in bridge watching our parents play. Yes, it can be played on-line, but you don’t have that fun feeling our parents had playing against the neighbors or friends or just playing a few hands at the kitchen table.

Help keep your bridge on a social level. Join us for fun and good fellowship at Bridge Haven.

Hope to see you soon so we get to see that smile on your face when you make that slam off two aces or you find the killing lead that sets your friendly opponents in that cold game all other table make.
