Play Bridge Online Supporting Local Clubs


During this time of concern about our members' health and safety, when our local bridge clubs have temporarily closed, you may be feeling an urge to find a way to play bridge with your regular partners and other friends.


Bridge Base Online (BBO) is now offering daily games with black points awarded. Go to the BBO website information page by clicking here to learn how to use BBO and play in these new games supporting participating local clubs. (Note: the 2:00pm PDT game has been moved back to a 2:10 start time.)

In addition, some of our local clubs are now offering their own BBO games, where play is just with players at that club. Check your local club's website for more info.

So, if you are staying at home as recommended by health officials, this could be a fun way to enjoy some bridge during these trying times.
