2021 ANC and 2021 GNOT Final

In light of the worsening COVID situation in Victoria, NSW and ACT, the current travel restrictions and the unlikelihood of restrictions easing for travel to WA and QLD in the near future, the ABF Board has agreed to the following changes to the calendar in 2021:

The 2021 ANC which was to be held in WA in November has been postponed until further notice. An online event will be held in its place and further details on this will be available on My ABF and the website soon.

The 2021 GNOT Final (originally to be held in Brisbane) will also be cancelled as a face-to-face event, and instead will be held as an online event.

ABF Board; August 30 2021

A Message from the NSWBA State Committee

COVID 19 Update

My ABF launched

The Australian Bridge Federation has launched its new technology platform. The My ABF platform will support bridge across Australia for the ABF, state and territory organisations, clubs and of course all Australian bridge players.

First congress using the new My ABF entry system

The NSWBA Online Summer Matchpointed Swiss Pairs Congress on January 31 was the first congress in the country to trial the new My ABF entry and payment system.

My ABF will be increasingly rolled out across the country and allows any club to list a congress and accept online entries and payments. It also gives players a personalised login for your bridge activities from where you can:

  • Manage your personal details
  • View your masterpoints
  • View, enter, and pay for bridge events
  • See announcements from the ABF, your State and your Club.
  • Participate in bridge discussion forums
  • Run a "Bridge Credits" account with the ABF which you can put money into to pay for your bridge entries

To enter a My ABF congress you need to sign up to My ABF which takes about 30 seconds!
