The world has prepared for a return to face-to-face bridge games, and the time is now to check out what the world of tournament bridge has to offer. Bridge tournaments are back in a big way.

The American Bridge Association (ABA) has just announced their Welcome Back Tournament for returning players.

Are you a member of the American Bridge Association yet?

Are you seeking a national bridge tournament for a return to serious bridge?

Here’s what bridgeurs should know about the upcoming Nov/Dec 2021 tournament – and why it’s a good idea to be there.


The American Bridge Association (ABA) is a separate national bridge organisation from the ACBL. While they still use a ranking system called Masterpoints, the points are unique to members of the Association.

Their history is rich, being formed in 1932 to accommodate the needs of black tennis players – and at the same time, enthusiasts of bridge.

The ABA holds a position of national importance today. Their website is a rich resource of lessons, information about bridge, and more details about their history. Even if you aren’t a member, it’s worth visiting.
