Welcome to Canterbury Regional Bridge.

This region ranges from Akaroa in the East, Rangiora in the North to Waimate in the South. Our clubs range in size from the large such as the Christchurch club to the smaller such as Temuka and the United Bridge Club. All are full of bridge enthusiasts.

This site is run by the Canterbury Regional Committee

The functions of the Regional Committee are to:

  • Provide a local link between Clubs and the National Body
  • Co-ordinate the activities of Clubs by arranging Tournament Schedules, Inter Club play, etc
  • Arrange Teams and organise Tournaments for events such as the Regional Interprovincial Teams Trials and visits of overseas Teams
  • Provide a source of experienced advice to assist any Club that may request such advice
  • Provide a unified body for the promotion of the game in a regional context
  • Conduct Regional Tournaments
  • Support Bridge in Canterbury wherever possible.

The Regional Committee does not aim to arrange or organise bridge at the individual club level.
