Club Director Will Watson, in conjunction with Silicon Valley Youth Bridge, will offer a Parent-Child section at this duplicate game.

Each pair should consist of one junior player (age 25 or younger as of January 1st 2015) partnering a parent or grandparent.

This is an opportunity for the younger players to get to know each other, while sharing a game with a parent or grandparent. For some, it may be a first experience at competitive bridge. This will be an American Contract Bridge League (ACBL) sanctioned tournament, awarding masterpoints to high scorers.

Players who are new to duplicate are welcome, however all players, including the juniors, are expected to know basic bridge, including bidding, and to be able to make legal bids and plays consistently. They don’t have to be great bids and plays! Knowledge of tournament etiquette and strategy is not required – it will be a friendly game, and these things can be learned as you go along.

Players enjoy a recent event

ACBL membership is not required, but is strongly suggested. You can register online at acbl.org, or else at the bridge center at the event. Adult membership is $29 for the first year, and junior membership only $15 per year. Both include a monthly print magazine, and registration of masterpoints (start earning towards becoming a Life Master!).
