Club Reopens

Welcome Back to the Santa Barbara Bridge Center

Club reopens June 21st!  We will start with 12 tables and adjust as needed. Since space is limited, please register here to assure seats for you and your partner. Click here to learn more about the online registration system, and watch demo videos. For more information about club reopening, click here.

If your partner has not played in an online club game recently, the system might not find him/her when you look for your partner during registration. If you have played recently, ask your partner to register and select you as the partner. If neither of you have played recently, you need to register with anyone on the list, preferably a visitor from far away who has played at our virtual club, so that the system recognizes you as an active player, and your partner can register with you.

 

Mentor/Mentee Program

Classes and the Mentor Program

We are evaluating options for resuming classes and the mentor program. Before we reopen face-to-face events, below is a partial list of programs available now.
The BAND club offers many bridge lessons.
If you are comfortable with self-paced learning and practice, the learning page on the ACBL website has many links.
Audrey Grant's website features lessons, books and other resources.
In our neighborhood, Rose Buckley of the Ventura Unit offers live bridge lessons every Saturday morning.

Founded in 1976, the Santa Barbara Bridge Center is a sanctioned
bridge club of the American Contract Bridge League (ACBL).
