About

The Bridge Club of Atlanta is owned and operated by Sam Marks (view Sam’s Bio). Sam has been teaching bridge in Atlanta for the last 12 years. There is a full teaching schedule with classes from well known local teachers Sam Marks and Marty Nathan.

The BCA’s philosophy is for all players to have a good time. To help achieve this we have instituted a no-psyching policy in all games with a 750 limit or below. If you feel your opponents have psyched, please let the director or Sam know. We strive to be the friendliest club with a comprehensive Zero Tolerance Policy for all games and a No-Psyching Policy for all limited games.

If you need a partner, email or call us ASAP and we will do our best to match up single players. Feel free to call (678) 812-4324 to arrange partners. All food and drinks are provided at no charge.

Session fees are just $12. All students, age 24 and under, with a student id, will be able to play for $6.
