Welcome to North Alabama Bridge Association
Welcome to the North Alabama Bridge Club and ACBL Unit 232

Unit 232 encompasses northern Alabama and includes bridge club locations in Huntsville, Athens, Florence and Scottsboro

Bridge During the Pandemic
Bridge During the Pandemic

All Unit 232 bridge sites are closed due to the COVID - 19 pandemic.  In the meantime, many of our members and other bridge friends in north Alabama are playing bridge online using the Bridge Base Online (BBO) platform.  It is easy to use and even offers some benefits over playing in the club. The games are usually 18 to 24 boards, played at a rate of 7 minutes/board, lasting approximately 2 hours, and they award ACBL black master points. Occasionally we have an opportunity to win red master points. We appreciate the support that our players have given to the Unit 232 virtual games.  Your participation helps to keep our bridge players connected with each other, as well as helping us pay our Directors and other bills during this time that the Unit 232 clubs are closed for face-to-face bridge.  WHERE: www.bridgebase.com COST: $6, just like at the club.

Support the ACBL Charity Foundation with Bridge

  • Join us for Charity Week from April 12-18 (Monday to Sunday) and earn double black masterpoint awards while also raising funds for the ACBL Charity Foundation.
  • During Charity Week, part of each Virtual Club entry fee will be given to the ACBL Charity Foundation, an organization dedicated to supporting local communities in all 25 districts.
  • Games will be held in the Virtual Clubs on Bridge Base Online. No registration is required. Simply play in your usual Virtual Club game.
  • Entry fee will be $7.00

Here’s how the event works:

  • Any Virtual Club game that starts between 12:01 a.m. on Monday, April 12, and 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, April 18, will automatically be included in the event.
  • All games will pay DOUBLE regular club points, 100% black.
  • You do not need to do anything special to participate these games; Virtual Club play is automatically included.
