Live Opening Update
We want to thank you for participating in our survey about returning to in-person Bridge.
You have given us a lot to consider.
We feel it is premature to open live at this time.
Many of you have expressed that you are not yet comfortable with in-person Bridge.
We also feel that we all need to learn more about how the change in mask and social distance requirements will affect our day-to-day lives.
We will reevaluate our reopening date as we move into the summer months. We will provide reopening information through email and our website.

Of all the traditions we hope to keep alive during this difficult time, the posting of bad news
on the whiteboard is not one of them.
It is with deep sadness that we mark the passing of members of our Essex Bridge Center family.
How to Play Bridge Online with Essex Bridge Center
Fun, Social, Challenging, Intellectually Stimulating
Essex Bridge Center - The largest Bridge Club in New Jersey - welcomes players at all levels of experience, ability and interest. From complete beginners to tournament level players, all are welcome. We love bridge and want you to love it too.
Essex Bridge Center has been owned and operated year-round by the Powell family since July 1995 and is currently under the direction of Meagan & Alan Powell.
A family of experienced teachers, they have worked to bring more people to the enjoyment of bridge. Today the center offers many lessons and games below the advanced level where beginners and intermediates can develop and improve their bridge skills. Intermediate and advanced players benefit from the latest developments in duplicate bridge including pre-dealt hands with hand records available after the game (and online) and wireless electronic pads on each table to facilitate faster and more accurate scoring.
Roz Powell, Alan's mother and one of the original owners of the Club, presents lessons to our mid- and full-Intermediate players and shares her years of expertise with small groups each semester.
Rob Powell, son of Roz and brother of Alan, provides computer and internet support to the business.
