Bridge: A Mind Sport for All


BAMSA Virtual Conference 28 June – 1 July 2021

All aspects of bridge – the good, the bad, and the ground-breaking – are on the table at a four-day virtual conference organised by Bridge: A MindSport for All (BAMSA). By showcasing research and innovation, the conference aims to inspire and enable the bridge community to promote bridge more widely in society.

The conference is an open forum for academics, bridge players, organisers and policymakers from across the bridge spectrum (local, national and international). The aim is to provide a relaxed online environment in which to share ideas, review good practice and focus on solutions.

Conference sessions will consider key challenges facing the bridge sector: the collapse of face-to-face bridge in 2020 and the knock-on effect on bridge clubs; the scandal of online cheating; and the hybrid future of the game after covid-19. The bridge world is in a state of flux, but the huge take-up of online bridge and pioneering approaches to teaching, recruitment and marketing give cause for optimism.

All are welcome to attend.
