All Remaining 2020 Bridge Tournaments Canceled

June 17, 2020 - Due to the ongoing risk posed by the coronavirus, the ACBL is canceling the 2020 Fall North American Bridge Championships, scheduled for November 26-December 6, 2020, in Tampa FL. 

With this same concern, ACBL will not staff any sectionals or regionals with tournament directors for the remainder of 2020. This removes any possibility for face-to-face tournaments during the balance of the year. 

It is the right thing to do. The safety of our members – the community most at risk for COVID-19 – and our employees is of paramount importance to us. At this time, we cannot ask players or staff to travel and risk exposure. 

ACBL management and the Board of Directors found this a difficult decision to make. However, the facts are clear, and we must act based on the well-being of our membership and our staff.

Joseph Jones, ACBL Executive Director

District 10 Board Meeting Minutes

Please review the March 20, 2020 District 10 Board Meeting Minutes.  Note that minutes are not final until approved by the board at their next meeting.

Playing Bridge On-line

While your club is closed, you may be interested in playing bridge on-line either socially or in a duplicate game earning masterpoints.  Please note this March 18 message from the ACBL regarding playing duplicate bridge on-line based on a partnership between ACBL and Bridge Base Online (BBO).  The ACBL and BBO will soon support club-only events in which your club could sponsor a duplicate game.  If you are interested in playing either social or duplicate bridge on-line, please contact your club owner or manager.

Check out ACBL "Support Your Club Game" Frequently Asked Questions.

NAP & GNT Update

ACBL canceled the 2020 Spring and Summer NABCs.  Please see the NAP & GNT page for information regarding the impact of this change and on any future district plans for the 2021 contests (as those decisions are made).
