The Bridge Deck of Scarsdale
If you are a bridge player and are considering a move to Westchester, you are in luck. The Bridge Deck is an ACBL affiliated bridge club right in Scarsdale off Central Avenue with easy access to major highways and plenty of parking space. The club has been in existence since 1974 but the current owners Richard and Carol Laufer – local residents for over 25 years – have made it the inviting home away from home for the regular players that meet there, coming from as far away as Manhattan, upper Westchester, and Rockland Counties.
The Bridge Deck is open 7 days a week. In addition to the open games two or three times a day, there are also Newplicate games four times a week. There are courses for beginners and supervised play programs, and seminars for advanced players on different topics. A light lunch provided by the club is included in the $12 fee for a three hour play, and Carol’s delicious homemade cakes are a hit and run because they last all of 30 seconds.
The Bridge Deck is really a friendly place. Even though I do not get to play bridge very often due to my work, I have gotten to know many people there that are genuinely nice. Most of the master players are kind enough to give pointers to newer players. Sometimes they will go over the hands with people who want to linger after the game. All in all, I think it is the most extensive bridge club inWestchester. It is clean and professionally run. What better way to spend a few hours with friends, without the hassle of serving food and cleaning up? A $12 lunch and a whole afternoon of entertainment? I’m in.
