Santa Cruz Lifts Mask Mandate; SCBC Follows Suit

Santa Cruz County lifted the indoor mask mandate on September 29; masks are now optional while in the bridge center.

All players and directors must be vaccinated and bring proof at their first instance returning to the SCBC. Proof may be the vaccination card, a photo of same, or a screen shot of the revelant portion of their immunization record.

Face-2-Face (F2F) games are weekdays at 10A (Tuesdays and Fridays) and 12 Noon (Mondays and Wednesdays). There are also six games on BBO during the week. The SCBC online calendar shows which games are F2F and those which are on BBO.

No food or snacks is provided. For games beginning at 10A, there is a short lunch break around noon. Food may not be consumed at the bridge tables while play is underway. Coffee, water and a limited assortment of soft drinks ($1) are provided and may be consumed at the bridge tables.

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.

We look forward to you at the tables!
