Great Bridge Links first appeared on the internet in 1995 as a page on the Canadian Bridge Federation website. After residing there for a few years it became evident that the ‘page’ was growing at such a rate, it had become impractical to keep it on the cbf.ca host. Jude Goodwin moved it over to its own domain and host and the site has been thriving ever since. This year marks 20 years online

Originally the site serviced a global online community of bridge players that had very little else to help map the resources and information available. Today there are thousands of bridge sites, and Great Bridge Links plays more of a portal role in world of bridge websites.  70% of our visitors are visiting for the first time. This statistic has remained constant over the last decade.

Most of our pages are created with these visitors in mind. However, we continue to manage the Bridge Tournaments section for our regular viewers – this is a page that has no duplicate elsewhere and remains popular. Other pages that are returned to time and again are the Bridge Software and the Play Bridge Online sections.

And of course, New Links is a first-stop for everyone. Be sure to check New Links often!
