Corona Virus Info
The physical bridge club is closed but we have moved online holding duplicate games on BBO and lessons on Zoom.
Come hang out with us and play some bridge.
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.
Essex Bridge Center has joined with more clubs from around the country to form the Alliance Bridge Club.
ALLIANCE is the largest and friendliest Bridge Club, on the web, brought to you by the ACBL's most successful Teaching clubs and their affiliates.

The ACBL is allowing Virtual Clubs to award a 50% bonus in all Club games, all levels of play.
This extra award will NOT be available in the Save Your Club (SYC) games, only in Virtual Club games.
Our allied Club games will be big enough to take full advantage of the 50% bonus to award maximum masterpoints,
and yet small enough for players to have a chance to get into the Overalls.

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.
