Bringing Home the Bling.    Congratulations!

On February 18, 2017 the JBA team of Daria Snider and Alex Marshall and Faye and Jerry Rosenthal, won the Colonel Reidelbach Trophy at the Richmond Bridge Center.  Twelve teams, with a maximum of two Life Masters per team, participated in this one session event.  The Reidelbach Trophy has been awarded since 1962.

Welcome to the Jefferson Bridge Association, Charlottesville, Virginia

Enjoy real southern hospitality at Jefferson Bridge Association's (JBA) games where you'll find challenging bridge, gracious players and delicious refreshments.

JBA was organized in 2006 to add to the enjoyment of duplicate bridge in Charlottesville and the surrounding areas of Virginia. The member-owned, non-profit club is sanctioned by the American Contract Bridge League. JBA runs three games each week and sponsors an annual tournament. The club offers many special events to award additional masterpoints to the winners and benefit local charities. 

On the first Friday of each month, club masters offer a forum to discuss and teach bidding systems and playing techniques.

ACBL certified instructors offer private or group bridge classes beginning, intermediate and advanced players.

JBA was the first bridge club♠ in the US to use the highly successful Bridgemate Wireless Scoring System for instantaneous feedback and scoring.  All games feature pre-dealt hands and hand records.  Results of each game are posted on this website.

DATES FOR UPCOMING EVENTS:

After the success of our Inter-Club Championship game last month, and with the dwindling numbers on our Monday night games, we are going to test a new schedule for the month of March

Effective March 1, we will suspend the Monday evening games for the month of March.

Effective March 1, we  will host an evening game which will begin at 5:00PM.   A light dinner fare will be provided to evening players.  (Pizza, bbq, subs, hotdogs, etc.)  Reservations will be appreciated so enough food will be available.

     (If daytime workers want to play in this game and find they can't arrive by start time, we may allow them a 15 minute grace time, which may result in a late play - if they notify me or the director ahead of time.)

To compensate for the suspension of the Non-Life Master Monday night games, we will run a two section game on the 3rd Wednesday, March 15 , with one section for NLMs only.  (This will be a similar set-up to our 199er games on Fridays.)  

I look forward to seeing how this experiment will work.    A decision on continuing the schedule will be made after March 22.
