Player Training Videos and Guide

Welcome to Sun Lakes Bridge

We strive to be the Friendliest Game in the Valley!  Virtually all club member data has been transferred to this site, permitting necessary functions to be accomplished here.  Club-wide emails will be sent from here.  Game schedules are displayed; results and helpful club information can be accessed, all without a log-in.  Some items such as a club membership list with phone numbers and masterpoints, individual and pair performance analysis and certain club documents may only be accessed through log-in by members who have established a password. You will be able to update your Account and your contact data, such as listing and distinguishing between landline and mobile phone numbers and opting out/in of a list of items. Our membership listing default is only name, phone numbers and masterpoints (we don't show email address), but by going to your Account you may choose to de-list one or both phone numbers or even your name.  You may opt out of receiving club emails and opt back in at a later date.

Please browse the site at your leisure.  Those interested in reviewing game results will be pleased by the various displays available. You should experiment with that.  One hint:  after clicking on "Results" and the game by date, click on your pair in the list and your contract and result will be highlighted as you review every board. 

When logged in with your password, by clicking on the Personal Analysis tab, you will see a list of members who have played at the club at least five times since game results have been uploaded to the site beginning 7/23/19 (not since the beginning of 2018 as it says).  You can click on any name to view that player's performance trend.  The Membership web pages give an opportunity to Log Off (though it reads like a command).
