BridgeWebs User Guide
1. Introduction

I started Bridgewebs back in 2005, at the request of a friend at my local bridge club. He wanted the ability to capture and broadcast the results of each week's game to the members of our club.

Since then the functionality of Bridgewebs has expanded enormously and it is now used by almost 2000 clubs in over 30 countries around the world. Many of the features in Bridgewebs today have been requested by individual clubs but have then been made available to all. This does make Bridgewebs rather complex and this guide will hopefully get you started with a simple website which can be grown to meet your requirements over time.

This guide is structured in a way that will allow you to understand the basics first and progress to more complex functions when you are ready.

We are also developing some Video Tutorials and you can find these at https://www.bridgewebs.com/videos/
