Bridge isn’t just a card game. Bridge provides a cognitive workout as well as an opportunity for social interaction. It isn’t just seniors who are benefiting from this game, the younger generation is reaping the benefits as well. Just view “The Next Stage Has Begun for the Mathewson Bridge Center” on KRXI Fox 11 with Connie Wray and you’ll see why people like to play bridge!


The number of people playing at the MBC is the single most important indicator of the financial situation of the WBS. Usually this is measured in tables played per mont, or “table count”. To be at break even, the MBC needs about 300 to 350 tables per month on average.

We are showing very steady progress towards this goal!


Our Location

Mathewson Bridge Center, 125 West Plumb Ln, became bridge players new home in January 2020 thanks to a generous donation by the Charles M. Mathewson Foundation. MBC is now open six days a week for duplicate bridge games. See our schedule of games in the Weekly Schedule above. MBC is also home to the Reno Bridge Academy.
