Welcome to Gainesville Bridge Club
Beginning Bridge Class Resuming

Our annual Beginning Bridge class will resume on Monday, September 9th.  Classes are held at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, from 1PM to 3:30PM.  We will be using the ACBL acclaimed textbook, Beginning Bridge Using 2/1 by Jim Ricker.  It costs $25.  Each lesson is $6.  The course will run from September to December covering the basics you need to be a novice player.

Tell all your friends who may be interested in learning duplicate bridge (or interested in learning 2/1) about this class.  For more information, the contact e-mail is:

Gainesville Bridge Club and ACBL Live

Starting on July 29th, we will be adding a new feature to our website called ACBL Live for Clubs.                               

ACBL Live for Clubs should send you an e-mail, similar to the ones you receive at a tournament, containing game results and updates to your personal data. When you click on View Socres in the email, you will see your results and a link to the hand record. To view Board Results, scroll down and "Select a board." You can also search for a club by name or location at Oak Hammock, Gainesville Bridge Club and Gatorbridge are linked separately.

All current game information such as the contracts for all pairs, how you placed against all the pairs, and updates to your personal data, will continue to be posted on our club website.  ACBL Live for Clubs is an alternative presentation of the same data with an additional e-mail notification.

Information on games played in other clubs can be accessed with ACBL Live for Clubs if that club has begun using ACBL Live.

You may have to register using to receive these e-mails.  You can also let the director know if you do not want to receive these emails.
