Jim Slinger First Emerald Life Master in SCBC

Jim Slinger achieved a milestone no other player from Santa Cruz has todate: Emerald Life Master! Congratulations to SCBC's first Emerald!

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.

Covid Vaccine Availabilty

If you are at least 65 years old you should be able to schedule your Covid-19 vaccination in Santa Cruz county with your health care provider. On March 15, people ages 16 - 64 with disabilities or severe underlying conditions that put them at high risk if they contract Covid-19 also become eligible.

As of March 3, 73 members have received their first or second shot. The Unit is tracking this number. This information is strictly confidential; no names will be released; it is needed for the Unit's plan for reopening the SCBC.

When you have completed your first shot, please send an email to info@santacruzbridge.org.

Logistics and info:

  • Schedule Wednesday Evenings at 6P beginning February 10.

Virtual Clubs on BBO

All games are currently 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.

SCBC Temporary Closure

The temporary closure of the SCBC facility continues. The Unit Board of Directors' policy is to keep the SCBC facility closed until face-to-face (F2F) bridge is again safe. This period may extend far past the date local health directives allow most activities to resume due to the nature of F2F bridge and because most members are in a high-risk category.

2020-12-12 Update Although a vaccine is now approved under an emergency authorization, the Unit 550 Board will not open the facility until the vaccine is widely available and a large portion of players interested in F2F bridge have received the vaccine.


SCBC temporarily closed. For updated information, click article in News.

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 games on www.bridgebase.com (BBO), and provides a pleasant, fun environment for learning and playing bridge.

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 info@santacruzbridge.org with questions or partner requests. Clicking Calendar displays game time, level, table fee for games and classes.
