Bridge has a long tradition on Barbados. Some years ago, the major Bridge Clubs on the Island joined together to form the Barbados Bridge League. The League has been able to employ the joint resources of the member Bridge Clubs to provide a dedicated Bridge Club building and modern computer dealing and scoring technology. It attracts the best players on the Island and yet retains the air of laid-back friendliness for which Barbados is famous. Jimmy Cozier was a club member who had the vision of such a league and the Bridge Club building is named after him.
