Looking for a Partner?

If you want to play, but do not have a partner, register in the Partnership Desk for the game 2 hours before start.  If someone else is in the same boat, they too will register there. Directors will see you are available and will attempt to find you a partner. You might just make a new friend, and have fun.

We want to welcome all our new players from Small Slams, Adobe Bridge Center, and Tucson Charity Bridge as we share our online club games.  We hope you find us friendly and competitive as we join each other at virtual tables.  If  you are brand new to our NW Tucson Virtual Games, it is MOST helpful if you give us at least one day advance notice so we make sure you are not blocked.  Click HERE or go to our MENU Bar titled Become our Friend on BBO.  Check out everything on this website to help you with your Virtual Club Game experience.

A NOTE TO PLAYERS FROM CLUBS OUTSIDE TUCSON:  To be fair to all clubs, ACBL restricts clubs from taking players away from a Home Club.   Guest Players outside the local area MUST play with a LOCAL club player.
