Does membership in the Club allow me to play as a member in the virtual club games on Bridge Base Online?
The quick answer is, “no.” Only members as defined by the ACBL may play as members in our virtual club games. Why is this? When the virtual clubs began, ACBL made the decision that a “member” of any bridge club was someone who had played at the physical club in the 14 months prior to the onset of the pandemic. We have no control over this.
The good news is that almost anybody may play in our virtual club games as a guest, including partners who are both guests. The ACBL has set limits to the number of guests who may play in a game, but we have never exceeded that limit.
You don’t need to be a member of the Club to play as a guest in our virtual club.
