The Villages Duplicate Bridge Club Sectional
The Villages Duplicate Bridge Club Sectional

Our club started having Sectionals in 2013 spearheaded by the efforts of Alex Booke.  We've been having them ever year since.  They have all been held in June of each year at the La Hacienda Recreational Center.

They have all been very successful and fully attended.  At our club's first Sectional, we had 328 tables which was the 3rd largest Sectional in the state of Florida.  There were 372 people who played in at least one of the tournament sessions. Of these, 175 were Villagers, 186 came from other parts of Florida, and 11 were out-of-staters.

The following years have been equally successful.  In 2014 we had 335 tables which put us as the 2nd largest in Florida.  In 2015 we had 342 tables.  In 2016 we had 351 tables.
