About the American Bridge Association, Inc. (ABA)

The American Bridge Association (ABA) was formed in 1932 by black tennis players at Buckroe Beach, Virginia; During this time, blacks were excluded from most bridge events. The desire to compete in the sport of tennis, despite the racial barriers of the time, resulted in the creation of the American Tennis Association in 1916. The Association often held its matches on college campuses such as Hampton Institute, now Hampton University, and Lincoln University, where adequate facilities were available. One such championship event was held at Hampton in 1932. The participants in the first tournament were Dr. John L. McGriff, Portsmouth, VA; Drs. E.L. and L.L. Downing, Roanoke, VA; Dr. Furlong, Fayetteville, NC; and Dr. W.E. DuBissette, Endfield, NC, who later moved to New York and became the first president of the American Bridge Association. .  This group was responsible for the creation and organization of the ABA, and sponsorship of the first national bridge tournament at Buckroe Beach, VA.
