Bridge Haven has had to make schedule changes. Please check the Schedule Tab for the changes.

Bridge Haven

Bridge Haven is a warm and friendly place to play duplicate bridge with friends who will become family. We have multiple game times and types to accommodate all levels of play. We have been the proud sponsor of the BackStoppers game for the last 10 years raising $101,017 for this special charity. Looking for a fun place to play bridge, join us at Bridge Haven.

What Are Your Thoughts??

Has Bridge as we know it, died?

This virus has killed social bridge, so now it is a game played on computers without social contact. This has changed our bridge life.

We at BRIDGE HAVEN have always tried to promote the social aspects of bridge, and we want to continue to do so.

To promote social bridge, we are running the following games at Bridge Haven.

  • Monday, Wednesday and Friday games at 10:30 am
  • Wednesday Boeing game at 6:30 pm
  • Saturday at 12 noon is our 7 is Enough game (SWISS Team) The 7 means that you can only have one "A" player per team. Question about the SWISS Team game can be addressed to Mike at 314-583-1745
  • If you miss the social bridge game, join us at these games.

Bridge Haven Reopening Plans

Bridge Haven will follow the St. Louis County guidelines for reopening. St. Louis county guidelines now allow Bridge Haven to open at 50% capacity. For Bridge Haven, that means we can now have 6 tables at our games. Our plans are to make everyone as comfortable as possible within the guideline limitation.

We will follow these steps.

  • If you are sick, have a temperature, do not feel well, you will not be allowed to play. Please stay home.
  • The 50% occupancy for Bridge Haven is 6 tables. We are requiring reservations. Please contact Mike Arnheim at 314-583-1745 for reservations.
  • We are going to try to follow the published game schedule.
  • Team games are restarting with the 6 table limit. Reservation are required.
  • Face masks are required. Please cough into your elbow or shoulder.
  • Gloves will be available for those who wish to use them.
  • All cards will be rotated on a 4 or 5 day schedule. We believe this to be sufficient since the virus does not live on a surface after 3 days (CDC information).
  • Bidding boxes will be rotated like the playing cards.
  • We will use tables that meet the six foot rule (every other table). We will sanitize the tables before and after each game and as necessary during a game.
  • Hand sanitizer will be available on each table for use between rounds or as necessary. It will also be available on the counter.
  • Snacks will be limited.

We at Bridge Haven do understand that if you are not comfortable attending games, that it is ok. We want everyone to return when they feel comfortable.

Charity Game Every Friday at 10:30 am

We had a request from a group of players to have a Friday AM game. After much discussion Chuck agreed to have a Charity game every Friday am. ACBL allows more points for charity games. The cost is an extra dollar that goes to the charity. Our charity is Backstoppers. If you are looking for ACBL master points this is a good way to earn MP. On Friday 9/29, first place earned 2.04 ACBL MP. IF you have questions feel free to call, Chuck at 618-530-4300 or Barbara at 314-374-2760.
