Welcome to Naples Premier Bridge Club
The Naples Bridge Center has a long history of serving the bridge-playing community with games and education, dating back to 1970. As a member-owned, non-profit organization it provides a premier environment for both learning and playing bridge. Visitors are always welcome.
All games are sanctioned by the American Contract Bridge League (ACBL) and directed by a staff of professionals. Easily reached from all areas of Collier County, the NBC features the nicest playing conditions in Southwest Florida. We are located at 5865 Golden Gate Parkway Naples, FL. 34116, just off I-75 at exit 105 and less than five miles from US 41. For more information call (239) 455-4445 or send us an e-mail via our contact form.
- Masterpoints and Simplified Entry Fees
As we come into season and the games are bigger, it is important to understand that ACBL has limits on the number of points that can be awarded in a regular club game, regardless of the size.
In order to maximize the masterpoint awards at the club, we will now be offering as many special events as allowed by ACBL. To eliminate the hassle of extra game fees, the Board has decided on one flat rate for all games at NBC (except the May and 299 sectionals). In 2015 the game fee will be $8 for members ($10 for guests) with no extra charges for special games or STACs.
All games… one $8 price for members… more masterpoints.

- ACBL-Wide Event Jan 31– Reservations Required – Half Red Points
On Saturday, Jan 31, NBC will participate in the ACBL-wide fund Game. Players all over the world play the same hands. This event has full sectional rating so offers Maximum Points. Both open and 99ers sections as usual!
Because there is a Guest Speaker Seminar that morning, reservations are required for those NOT attending the seminar. Please sign up on the bulletin board. Non-attendees will be accommodated on a space-available basis.
- Expert Guest Speaker Pat Harrington
Be a Bridge Detective
Pat is a regular columnist in the ACBL Bulletin and created four Play Courses that are part of the ACBL teaching program (Club Play, Modern Notrump Bidding and Major Suit Raises I and II). She has won the American Bridge Teachers’ Association’s Teacher of the Year award multiple times for her work.
A good detective uses all the available clues. Bridge players often fail to consider clues from the bidding during the play of the hand. Pat Harrington will help you improve your play and defense as you become a better bridge detective.
Fee is $45 (NBC members) or $50 (non-members) which includes breakfast, lunch and the afternoon duplicate. Click here to download a reservation form and return it with your payment.
