The Peace Arch Duplicate Bridge Club came into being in September 2008 when a group of local bridge players took over a privately held club in White Rock.
It is run as a non-profit enterprise with the aim of providing a friendly, yet competitive duplicate game under ACBL sanction.
Being one of only two ACBL sanctioned day games in the South Surrey/White Rock area at the time, we celebrated our first anniversary on the 1st Sept 2009 with a tremendously successful game of 24 tables.
Presently our Tuesday games frequently have over 20 tables each week, as we draw on a database of over 200 regular players. The players come from different areas of the lower mainland as well as from Bellingham WA.
Everyone enjoys our friendly atmosphere; and because our games are stratified, players of all abilities feel that they have a good chance of earning masterpoints within their Stratum. In fact each year, in the masterpoint races for Unit 430, we have many of our players ranking in the Mini Mckenney as well as the Ace of Clubs within their MP categories. (see below under “Our Players” for current list)
Now entering our eleventh year of operations, we hope to maintain our success by keeping to our philosophy of providing a well run friendly yet competitive game to players of all abilities. Our club strives to provide those features expected of an up-to-date ACBL club: ON LINE POSTING of game scores on BRIDGERESULTS.NET as well as ACBL LIVE, HAND RECORDS from generated deals and WIRELESS SCORING using Bridgemate IIs. We hold many SPECIAL GAMES throughout the bridge calendar year including the multi-district WESTERN STAC as well as the two very popular SWISS TEAM events .
Since the beginning of 2015, we have been at ELGIN Hall, located at 14250 Crescent Road, Surrey. And since December 2015, we have run the Wednesday evening game (formerly called the White Rock DBC) at Cranley Place. We are most grateful for our many supporters for sustaining both our games.
Many of our regular players are named among the top 10 within their respective masterpoint categories in our Unit 430’s Ace of Clubs and Mini-McKenney Races. You can view the current lists by clicking the links below..
