Board of Directors and Club Officers

The Raleigh Bridge Club is a not-for-profit organization with a vested interest in the future of duplicate bridge in the Raleigh area. Our primary purpose is to provide a friendly, viable and accessible facility for playing and improving one’s skill at all levels in the game of duplicate bridge. Our secondary purpose is to enhance learning and knowledge of the game through class offerings and lectures.

We will accomplish this mission with a commitment to making the duplicate bridge experience enjoyable and challenging for players at all skill levels; and offering opportunities for social, duplicate and tournament play that inspire passion for and interest in the game of bridge.

The RBC is sanctioned by the American Contract Bridge League and is a member of the Mid-Atlantic Bridge Conference, District 7, and Unit 119.
