Online Eduational Opportunities -

During to the Covid-19 Pandemic, when Bridge Clubs across the world closed, we found that it takes more than a pandemic to stop the bridge community!
Clubs, Players, Instructors and Students moved Online! 

The most popular playing site is Bridge Base Online, where one can take classes, practice, play in local club, national and world wide games! 
Bridge Classes usually involve a combination of BBO and Zoom (or some other virtual meeting program).

If you have any questions about a class - send an email to and a member of the Education Committee will get back with you.
