A Message from District Director Kevin Lane

Welcome to District 23 of the American Contract Bridge League.  District 23 is one of 25 Districts of the ACBL.  District 23 includes all of Los Angeles County.  The District is divided into nine geographical areas.  They are:  Pomona-Covina; Glendale-Verdugo; Santa Clarita-Antelope Valley, Long Beach; Pasadena-San Gabriel Valley; San Fernando Valley, West Los Angeles, Downey-Whittier, and Torrance-South Bay.  The District is governed by the Association of Los Angeles County Bridge Units (ALACBU).  ALACBU meets three times a year at our local regional tournaments.

Using the features of this site, a person can find out about anything happening with bridge in Los Angeles and throughout the ACBL.  You can find Regional and Sectional tournaments, local bridge clubs, bridge instruction, special events like the Grand National Teams, North American Pairs and Sectional Tournaments at Clubs.  Our award-winning bridge newspaper, The Southern California Bridge News, can also be accessed from this site.
