The New South Wales Bridge Association (NSWBA)

The NSWBA is the State body responsible for administering bridge in New South Wales. It is a not for profit organisation and its headquarters are located in Sydney. The NSWBA is run by a Council.

Zones and Regions

NSW is large and there are 155 affiliated clubs with over 13,000 members. It is therefore impossible for the NSWBA to directly maintain links with all of them. Consequently the State is split into 5 zones (each with a NSWBA Councillor), further split into 15 regions (each with a representative) containing a smaller number of clubs. See table below for details.

A club's zone is based on the postcode of the club's premises. Details of the zones can be found on the Council page. Clubs can also see which zone and region they are in by viewing the Club details from the Find a club page.

Details of the Regional representatives, their role and contact details can be found on the NSW Regional Representatives page.
