The Hilton Head Island Bridge Club (located in Port Royal Shopping Center) recently celebrated on June 14 their one-year anniversary of reopening post-COVID.

Determination and hard work have been the key to successfully getting the club up and running again. The club president Beth Dresher and club manager Sandy Ritchey spent endless hours coming up with a plan. They contacted members and realized that they were eager to get back to the club as long as safety requirements were implemented.

A number of factors have contributed to the return of normal play, supervised play, lessons, and weekly games. The first game was held June 15, 2020, and 24 players participated.

The club is now offering five games a week plus a weekend Swiss Team event. People have indicated an interest and eagerness to get back to the table, hold cards in their hands and to have interaction with other players and friends. 

The club has added 20 new members over the past year, indicating a continuing interest in the game of bridge.

New members are welcome. The club is located at 95 Mathews Drive, Suite A8 in Port Royal Plaza.
