2021 ANC Butler Pairs

The next championship event at the NSWBA will be the ANC Butler Pairs, 4 Mondays commencing March 8 at 7:15pm on the RealBridge platform.

The top Open and Women's pairs will receive a refund of their entry fees to the corresponding 2021 Open or Women’s Australian Butler Pairs Championship in Perth.

Only active registered members of the ABF Masterpoint System who are members of a club affiliated with the NSWBA are eligible to enter.

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!

ANC in Orange rescheduled

After a great deal of consideration, it has been decided to postpone the ANC in Orange from 2021 until 2023. The Bridge Association of Western Australia have agreed to host the 2021 event commencing the same date, 10 July 2021. This transfer to Perth in 2021 also suits a need to utilise a prior commitment to the Perth Convention Centre after the Asia Pacific Congress in April was cancelled.

Many will be disappointed with this postponement (including the organising committee), but we believe it gives us the best chance for the Orange event to be a roaring success. Our key stakeholders understand the need for this postponement. Our travel consultant, Silver Compass Tours, believe that the rescheduling is exactly the right decision. They are in fact not scheduling any “longer term events“ until mid-2022.

The Organising Committee looks forward to bringing you a stellar ANC in Orange in 2023 and wishes BAWA good luck in organising an ANC at short notice. The NSWBA urges the bridge players of NSW to support the 2021 event.
