PROCEDURE FOR SCORE CORRECTIONS

PLEASE CAREFULLY CHECK
ALL SCORES ENTERED
 INTO THE BRIDGEMATE.

At the VBBC, it is the
responsibility of the EAST
player to check all scores
 entered each round into
Bridgemate. If you later 
 find that one of your scores
was entered incorrectly you
are to contact your
  opponents and verify the
score  with them, then email
 the game director within 24
hours. Your own scores may
 also be checked in
  Bridgemate at the end of the 
 game. This is helpful as you can
verify with your opponents immediately.

 

One of the Best Florida Bridge Clubs

Located in Vero Beach Florida, the Vero Beach Bridge Center is a member-owned bridge club. We host daily bridge games, duplicate bridge tournaments, bridge classes for all levels,  celebrity speakers, and student games for new players which are all sanctioned by the American Contract Bridge League. In fact, the size of our club allows us to hold many restricted games for up and coming players, no need to swim with the sharks! 
Pre-dealt boards for pair games mean no shuffling and hand records are available after each game, whether for the daily bridge play or on-site duplicate bridge tournaments. The use of Bridgemate II allows results to be ready immediately following the game.
We have one of the best duplicate bridge clubs in Florida, if not the nation.  
We are currently ranked at #4 in North America for 2019 based on the number of tables of bridge played during the year!
