Virtual Clubs

Since May 2020 Dublin South Region Clubs have been lauching virtually on the BBO platform following an agreement between CBAI and BBO.  This has enabled clubs to aquire TD hosting rights to run tournaments at peak times for a small fee and most are now running their club nights online.

The following clubs in the Dublin South Region are now playing as virtual clubs and the list is growing all the time so why not get involved!
