Doors open 1 hour before game time. 299er games are scheduled Wednesdays January 6 through March at 1:30. At this game no player may have more than 300 masterpoints and no partner is required. All our games are stratified. Game results and Masterpoint lists are available at the Club and on the Website. Click on the Game Results link soon after each game.

Due to the seasonality of a resort destination the club is always closed between May and October.

You do not need to be a member of the ACBL to play with us; and we charge members and non-members the same playing fee.

We do not require reservations and we do not guarantee a partner. However, if you e-mail Julia Sauter (julia@sauter.ca) ahead to let us know you are coming, we will do everything we can to pair you up with a suitable partner.

During this time of covid we will not be serving snacks; just purified water.  

We have an exciting line-up of activities for new and aspiring players:
1. We are offering lessons for beginning players and for those who haven’t played bridge for awhile and want to bone up.
2. There will be Play & Learn games for newer players to practice their bidding and play.
3. We will also be offering  Play for Advanced players who want to significantly improve their game.
Please see our sections on Bridge Lessons and Game Calendar on the right-hand menu bar for more information.

Detailed Directions coming from the Hotel Zone:

Come in to Old Town Vallarta via Av. Vallarta.  You will go over a bridge that spans the Rio Cuale.  River Cafe is on the left in the middle of the Isla Cuale.  Francisco I Madero is the third left once you exit the bridge.  If walking or taking the bus, you will go left onto Madero; the Lions Club is on the right in the middle of the block before you come to Constitucion.  It is a very large, white, ugly building.  There are three doors to the Lions Club.  Ours is the westernmost door, or the closest door to Avenida Vallarta.  On game days there will be an ACBL sign on either side of the door.  If you are driving, you will need to pass Francisco I. Madero as the street is one-way heading West.  Take your fourth left after the bridge onto Lazaro Cardenas, find a spot to park and walk around the block to the Lions Club.  There is not usually parking available in front of the Club.  If taking a cab, tell the driver “Club de Leones, por favor.  Es en Calle Francisco Madero entre Avenida Vallarta y Constitucion.”  Coming via taxi, the club will be on your left, not your right.
