Players at last year's Championship.

Would you like to have a chance to win a large trophy for your high school, as well as a prepaid gift card worth up to $200? Then join other young bridge players seeking prizes and American Contract Bridge League (ACBL) masterpoints at this year's Bay Area High School Bridge Championship. Entry is free and includes lunch, snacks, tee shirts and other gifts.

Team-of-Four Event: In the morning session, teams of four players, all representing the same high school, will play against each other to choose two finalists to compete head-to-head in the afternoon session. The winning team in the afternoon will receive a large trophy for their school and each team member will receive an individual replica of the trophy and a $200 prepaid gift card. Members of the 2nd place teams will win $100 prepaid gift cards. Additional prepaid gift cards may be awarded if more than six teams enter the event.

Pair Event*: Members of teams that do not qualify for the finals of the team event can stay for lunch and compete in the afternoon pair event, which will also be open to new entrants. Players who wish to compete only in the pair event can arrive for lunch at 1:00 PM and stay to play bridge. Winners of the pair event will each receive a small individual trophy and a $125 prepaid gift card. The second place pair will each receive a $60 prepaid gift card. If more than eight pairs enter, the third place pair will also receive prepaid gift cards.

Warm-Up Pairs: There will also be a single session pair event in the morning for players who aren't participating in the team championships. Players may play with a partner from any school, not just their own. Winners of this single session event will win masterpoints but no prizes will be awarded.

Conditions of Contest (the official rules for this event)

*Pairs need not consist of two players from the same school. SiVY volunteers will try to find suitable partners for players who need them.


First place prizes provided in memory of Belle Bestor, a life-long bridge player who inspired her children to become Life Masters.
