the South Bend Bridge Club (SBBC) Web Site.
SBBC invites you to join us in the highly competitive but very rewarding
world of duplicate bridge. Duplicate bridge is a form of bridge where pairs
of players compete against other pairs by playing the same hands. The Club
is owned by its nearly 180 members who pay a yearly membership fee of
$12.00. Last year the SBBC hosted 3,136 tables of duplicate bridge.
strongly recommended that you start your SBBC bridge experience by taking
one of the classes. If you have never played before, or it has been many
years since you last played bridge, you will need to know all the modern
bidding systems. Click on the Classes button on the left of the home page to
view the beginning classes calendar and other class offerings. If you are
not sure where to start, talk with Tricia Killeen, our club manager, and she
will help you assess your level of current knowledge.
the great advantages of classes is meeting other new members who might
become playing partners. A good partnership is an important key to happy and
successful bridge playing.
other noteworthy areas to explore on the Home Page are the tabs titled
Calendars and Game Results. The Calendar will give you an idea of the weekly
games available. Open Games are for people of all skill levels. Limited
games (99ers, 299ers & 599ers) are for newer players.
Game Results will show the hands played and the results of recent games. You
can get a sense of the various games by looking at some of the results. Our
electronic scoring and internet-posting of the results are wonderful
benefits of playing bridge at the SBBC.
Welcome to SBBC and do not hesitate to call the club and talk to Tricia
or one of our directors for more information.........
