We know how hard it is having to stay at home and not play bridge
There are various online bridge games you can play. The most popular being BBO (Bridge Base Online). You can play free or pay a small fee to participate in some tournaments. Sign up now and have look around. If you need help, contact Karen or Kate. We can even help coach you on BBO. One tournament we recommend is the Speedball held on the hour every hour. 12 boards in an hour. The fee for this is $US1.25
Alternatively, you can get 3 friends together and start a table in BBO. You can chat, practice and see how you compare with others playing the same hands. Click on this link to get started
If anyone wants a teaching session on BBO, contact Karen. We can set up a table of 4 people, so you will all need to be signed up on BBO to get started. We can do this any day any time.
The Auckland Bridge Club is running a tournament for free at 1:30 pm and 7:30 pm on BBO. To find these events, type in "kiwis by AKBC" in the search field. Any New Zealander can play, so if you are interested, go to the Competitive section of BBO, then Tournaments and search for the Auckland event. Here you can register with your partner or place your name at the Partnership Desk.
There is also Sky Bridge which is primarily for Junior players. Click on this link to go to Sky Bridge
