New Tournament Sites: We have found great new venues for our tournaments!

Our first new site, the Keeney Memorial Center in Wethersfield is just minutes from the prior Hartford site  We are happy to say that the new site is everything you could hope for.  You’ll have a chance to see for yourself November 4 - 6.   We are also very excited about our second new site, St. Barbara Greek Orthodox Church in Orange.  You’ll be able to check that site out next year, May 19-21.  Easy to get to from either route 15 or I-95, just 10 minutes from the other prior site in Hamden. Both sites are easily accessible; both have lots of parking, lots of light, lots of space!!!

Between times, we invite you to come and play at our CBA Tournaments in Greenwich August 26-28 and our first 2017 tournament in Guilford, March 3-5.


Enjoy our game! Enjoy and use the CBA web site!

The Kibitzer Newsletter

The Kibitzer is the quarterly newsletter of the Connecticut Bridge Association.  It contains interesting articles on a wide variety of bridge-related subjects, as well as the results of Sectional tournaments and special games. We hope you will enjoy the articles and other information contained in it. If you have any comments, or wish to contribute an article, please contact the Kibitzer Editor, Linda Starr.

Please Note:
The Kibitzer is published in PDF format. To view it you must have Adobe Acrobat Reader (or other PDF reader, such as Foxit) installed on your computer. To download a free copy of Adobe Acrobat Reader, click here.

Sectional, STaC and Unit-wide Game Results

All of these results will be published on this website. It will no longer be necessary to go through Club Game Results on the ACBL site to find out how you (and your competitors) did.  STaC results will be a direct link to the ACBL.
Results from our Sectionals will be available on this site by the morning the day after the game. STaCs and special games that are handled through the ACBL will take a little longer. But they should be accessible far faster than before.
