Club Background

St George Budapest Bridge Club started around 1960 with four players arranging with the manager of the St George Budapest Soccer Club (formerly in Victoria St Mortdale) to play a regular game on the soccer club premises. These players moved back to Western Suburbs Bridge Club but the game continued. The Club grew considerably with a number of players from the Roselands Bridge Club moving over in the late 70s. It moved down Victoria Street to the OES hall at No.117 in 1989 and again, in 2012, to Southside Bridge Centre, then to Oatley RSL and Community Club at 23 Letitia Street, Oatley, and most recently to its current venue - the hall at Penshurst Anglican - 2 Carrington St Penshurst. It continues to thrive there with over 100 regular members.
