About Us
BAND is a family owned and operated business.  BAND was opened in 2003 to offer Bridge Lessons to persons interested in
learning the game of bridge and for those interested in taking their bridge game to the next level.

BAND has grown over the years into a full-service bridge club offering four types of
Bridge Games.  We have games seven
days a week.  BAND also offers games for social bridge players to better their game and to meet other social players.

BAND provides a complete
Book Store for all of your bridge supply needs, whether it be for duplicate or social bridge
events.  Stop by anytime during a regular scheduled class or game and purchase your bridge supplies.  If we do not have it
in stock, we will order it for you!

BAND has ten ACBL certified directors, four ACBL certified full-time instructors, four ACBL certified associate
instructors, one office manager, one club manager, one publicity manager, and two staff members.
