We play at the Southern Cross Club, 92-96 Corinna Street Woden. Approaching the Woden Town Centre from the Athllon/Hindmarsh Drives intersection the club is on your left. Take the first street on the left (Corinna St), and enter the club's undercover car park. From the car park proceed to the front desk where you can ask for directions to the Bridge room (also called the Community Groups Room). Alternatively go down the stairs near the entrance to the main dining area. The Community Groups Room is on the lower floor.


This area can also be accessed from the B1 car park level (or lift level B1) and pressing the buzzer and showing your Southern Cross Club membership card.


Postal Address: P.O. Box 6049 Mawson ACT 2607

Weekly Duplicate

Tea, coffee, food and drinks can be purchased upstairs in the main dining area. SCBC strongly values the patronage of the Southern Cross Club and we ask all our members and visitors to respect this by leaving the room in a neat condition.


The CSCC supports a large number of local community groups, schools and charities. SCBC greatly appreciates this support, and you can add your membership number to direct your support to the South Canberra Bridge Club Link to CSCC Community Rewards


We attempt to provide a partner for visitors - just contact our Matchmaker listed in the 'Contact Us' .
