Web Site


Looking for something? If it’s about bridge in Connecticut, you can find it here. By pulling down the menus from the headings at the upper left of the home page you can find the locations and times for club games and dates for upcoming Sectional and Regional tournaments. You can find Sectional results and hand records almost as soon as the game is over.

Attention All Teachers!
The ACBL has many tools to help both those teaching young people and for those working with the growing baby boomers who are now retiring and interested in duplicate bridge.
The ACBL sponsored education programs are fully funded and include teacher stipends and free textbooks.           
Register at The ACBL Resource Center for the School Bridge program and to order the necessary supplies.

 

In addition to youth programs, the ACBL supports college programs and has developed A College Bridge Kit and Guide  to help teachers and Junior members establish an active and competitive bridge team on their local college campus. Both items are available for order and download on the Resource Center. ACBL has also developed the College Bridge Kit and Guide to help teachers and Junior members establish an active and competitive bridge team on their local college campus.

Baby Boomers are important future duplicatebridge players. The ACBL Life Long Learning Program helps teachers introduce the game of bridge to adults through establishing continuing education programs at colleges and universities. The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute has approved programs at hundreds of schools, and support several bridge classes.

 


Welcome Duplicate Newcomers
The November, 2014 issue of the CBA Kibitzer has a list of the ACBL sanctioned newcomer duplicate games in Connecticut with contacts. We hope to see you at one of these games soon. Our goal is for you to increase your enjoyment of bridge, meet new friends, and join the many players in our state whose lives are enriched by this terrific game
.

 


We invite you to wander around the site. Click on Achievements and click on the Mini-McKenney or Ace of Clubs link to find out who is achieving what. Click on the top 200 in Connecticut. Maybe you’re one of that bunch. Maybe you’re close. You can also find who from Connecticut were winners at National tournaments.

Enjoy our game! Enjoy and use the CBA web site!

The Kibitzer Newsletter

The Kibitzer is the quarterly newsletter of the Connecticut Bridge Association.  It contains interesting articles on a wide variety of bridge-related subjects, as well as the results of Sectional tournaments and special games. We hope you will enjoy the articles and other information contained in it. If you have any comments, or wish to contribute an article, please contact the Kibitzer Editor, Linda Starr.

Please Note:
The Kibitzer is published in PDF format. To view it you must have Adobe Acrobat Reader (or other PDF reader, such as Foxit) installed on your computer. To download a free copy of Adobe Acrobat Reader, click here.

Sectional, STaC and Unit-wide Game Results

All of these results will be published on this website. It will no longer be necessary to go through Club Game Results on the ACBL site to find out how you (and your competitors) did.  STaC results will be a direct link to the ACBL.
 
Results from our Sectionals will be available on this site during the morning the day after the game. STaCs and special games that are handled through the ACBL will take a little longer. But they should be accessible far faster than before.
