We are currently transitioning the NSWBA peak body functions to Bridge NSW. Bridge NSW will continue to promote and generate bookings for all bridge events for member clubs in a calendar of events and through other promotional mechanisms. All events must have their entries administered by My ABF by end June 2024. Plans are being made to transition currently displayed entries that are not linked to My ABF, and guidance will be provided to clubs to allow this to happen in a seamless fashion.

The document below provides information for NSW clubs on the steps required to get a congress set up in My ABF.

The Spring Season of the Online Pairs League: you and your partner play one 12-board match per week against pairs of similar ability across the State. Matches start at 7:30pm and finish well before 9pm, leaving time to chat with opponents and to review bidding/play with partner, perhaps over your favourite beverage.

Smaller Clubs can use this competition as a way of offering evening online Bridge to their members without having to organise anything themselves. Not only that, but the Association returns $10/player to the NSW registered Home Clubs of participants, so playing in this competition will actually be supporting your own Club.

The League is organised into Divisions to ensure you are playing people of similar rank. The Association is keen to encourage participation from less-experienced players, so it is half-price entry if you have fewer than 100 masterpoints. The social interaction on RealBridge meeting new people of similar ability from across the State is also an important factor.

The Season is played over eight consecutive weeks. You will play every pair in your Division sitting in the opposite direction leading to two winners in each Division: one North-South and one East-West. RED masterpoints for every win (or draw), and outright masterpoints for the top three in each direction.

You DON'T need to play every week. You can find any reasonable substitute for yourself for up to three matches. So no need to worry about prior commitments, emergencies, or being too tired after a long day of F2F Bridge – just find someone who will fill in for you in that match.

You DO need to be registered on MyABF, as does your partner. You then sign up for the League for only 100 Credits or $50 each (or half that if you have less than 100 masterpoints at time of registration). There is an early-bird discount if you register by the Thursday Sept 14th, and the deadline for entries is the Monday before the competition starts.

If you are unfamiliar with RealBridge, want to check your audio or video, or have any questions about the competition you are welcome to attend a Q&A session on Thursday September 28th at 7:30pm (the week before the Competition starts). Link to Q&A session: TasteOPL
