  • Host: Tom Motter

  • Coffee and refreshments provided

This is just a friendly game to get out of the house after almost 2 years of solitude. Contact Carol Avenmarg with any questions. Hope to see you there!

Positive Covid Policy

Any person who has contracted Covid, recovered from Covid or been exposed to a known Covid case within the three week period prior to playing at the SCBC must first notify the SCBC Health Safety Officer (HSO), Jacci Sterling, before coming to the SCBC.

A protocol as specified by the SCBC HSO following Santa Cruz County Covid guidelines, will be supplied. Provided the person follows the protocol, all communication with the SCBC HSO will be held in strict confidence and they will be able to play safely for all at the SCBC at the appropriate time.

Any person who has a positive Covid test within two weeks after playing at the SCBC must also contact the SCBC HSO to determine if others need to be contacted.

Failure to comply with this policy or the protocol will result in the SCBC Board of Directors and the ACBL being notified and certain restrictions being placed on the player.

Unit 550 Eliminates Premium Game Extra Fees

Beginning February, 2021, additional charges for SCBC vClub games will be absorbed by the Unit. Prior to this Unit Board decision, games such as Silver Week, had an extra $2 table fee because the ACBL raised their charge per table.

Virtual Clubs on BBO

Some games are conducted online as an ACBL Virtual Club (vClub) on BBO. Here's a document with details about our vClubs and how to register on BBO.

Face-To-Face (F2F) game schedule changes; please review the Game Calendar.

Unit 550 Mission: The Santa Cruz Bridge Center (SCBC), Unit 550 of the American Contract Bridge League (ACBL), promotes the game of bridge, supports bridge clubs running both Face-2-Face (F2F) games at the bridge center and on (BBO), and provides a pleasant, fun environment for learning and playing bridge. On BBO, our games are termed "vClub" because they can be found within the Virtual Club section. We would be pleased to assist you getting on BBO to enjoy our games.

Game Calendar & Schedules: There are games at the SCBC and on BBO throughout the week. Some are open to players of all levels, termed "Open Games", while others are reserved for newcomers, novice and/or intermediate players. Contact us at with questions or partner requests. Clicking Schedule lists the regular schedule. Clicking Calendar displays game time, level, table fee for games and classes.

Game Results: Click Results in the left side menu bar or on the results logos in the table to the right or on the suit symbols / in the Game Calendar.

Masterpoints & Game Winners: Significant bridge accomplishments by our members are found under Accolades; including a listing of all SCBC Life Masters.
