The World Wide Bridge Contest
The World Wide Bridge Contest is an annual event held on the first weekend of June each year – where both the Friday and the Saturday fall in June. This one has an excellent commentary written by Eric Kokish and booklets are available for players to enjoy after the event.
WBF Year Points are awarded, and prizes go to the top 10 pairs in the overall ranking. This has always been a very popular event, and we would really like to increase participation so it would be great if some new clubs could join us. As with the other events, all you need to do is to email Anna Gudge with the details of your club and she can arrange everything for you.
The World Youth Open Bridge Championships are organized by the World Bridge Federation with the cooperation and support of the American Contract Bridge Federation (ACBL) & United States Bridge Federation (USBF) and the support of the ACBL’s: District 7; the Mid-Atlantic Bridge Conference (MABC); and District 9 (Florida); and sponsorship from Turner Broadcasting Systems and The Common Game.
