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.

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 www.bridgebase.com (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.

Some are open to players of all levels, termed "Open Games", while others are reserved for newcomers, novice and/or intermediate players.
