Welcome to Maine Bridge - Unit 189
Maine Bridge Association

Welcome to the Maine Bridge Association! The Association is Unit 189 of the American Contract Bridge League (ACBL), which is the governing body for duplicate bridge in North America. Approximately 600 of our members in the State of Maine are regular players of duplicate bridge.

To promote duplicate bridge in Maine, each year the Unit:

  • Runs six ACBL Sectional tournaments in various parts of Maine
  • Supports the operation of about 25 bridge clubs that hold games every week at various locations throughout Maine. These bridge clubs provide playing opportunities for all levels of skill.
  • Publishes Maine Bridge’s Who's Who in Maine Bridge annually

To assist the growth of duplicate bridge in Maine, we are committed to teaching bridge to players of all ages, whether in schools, in our clubs, or in retirement communities. If your group would like to enjoy the game more, please contact us to find out what we have to offer.
