It is ground-breaking research in this area of the sociology of Bridge, undertaken in conjunction with BAMSA – “Bridge – A Mind Sport for All” and will provide the bridge playing community with a significant resource of material to use both internally and in support of our engagement with the non-bridge playing world in promotion and sponsoring.
