It isn’t just seniors who are benefiting from this game, the younger generation is reaping the benefits as well. Just view “The Next Stage Has Begun for the Mathewson Bridge Center” on KRXI Fox 11 with Connie Wray and you’ll see why people like to play bridge!

Our Location

Mathewson Bridge Center, 125 West Plumb Ln, became bridge players new home in January 2020 thanks to a generous donation by the Charles M. Mathewson Foundation. MBC is now open six days a week for in-person games. See our schedule of In-Person and Virtual Club games in the Weekly Schedule above.
