Stress-Free Duplicate Bridge
“Under 21” sections for players with 0-20 masterpoints are offered at all games. In an Under 21 section, players compete with their peers at a relaxed pace in a 2-hour game and earn masterpoints. It's a perfect game for social bridge players who would like to try duplicate as well as newer players who want to play with others at the same level. You're welcome to invite your favorite partner to join you in an Under 21 game.
