Summary                                                                               

~~~

A Bridgemate is a small (6x8 inches) box placed on each Bridge|table and is a wireless scoring terminal that North (or South), after  playing each hand, enters the contract and tricks made.  After checking by East (or West), the result is then sent to a computer. At the beginning of an event, players identify themselves by Number, thus saving computer entry of names. As the event progresses the scores are transmitted to a computer which updates all scores (across sections if required).
