Play Bridge in Funchal

The Madeira Bridge Association (ABM) runs all duplicate bridge sessions and tournaments in Madeira

Club nights: Monday and Thursday 9pm – 12.30am

We play on the 3rd floor of the Casino da Madeira (see directions below). Parking is free for visitors to the Casino. A drinks and snacks service is provided in the bridge room.

You can come without notice on any Monday and on most Thursdays (see calendar below for the next 5 open tournaments). National qualifying events are held on some Thursdays, when visitors may not be able to play.

The standard is very varied, and we welcome all visitors. Please note that for legal reasons, the first time you come to the Casino you will need to show a photo ID (Identity Card, Passport or Drivers’ Licence)
