Zero Tolerance Policy

Our Board of Directors strongly believe that all experiences at St. Louis Bridge Center should be positive and friendly. As such, we have addopted a "Zero Tolerance" Policy that is strictly enforced at all games. Click here to see the policy.


Form 990

Our Form 990 for 2016 is now available. If you would like to review a copy, please see Linda. "Form 990" is an annual IRS form that provides the public with financial information about a nonprofit organization.


Online Partnership Desk

Looking for a partner? We have an excellent tool to help members find partners for any of our games. You can find it in the link bar on the left. This tool allows you to login and enter games where you are in need of a partner. You can also login to see a list of all players currently looking for partners. To access the system all you need is your ACBL number.


SLBC Raises Over $42,000 to Fight Alzheimer's Disease

The Longest Day was a huge success! We raised over $42,000, which will go toward helping to find a cure for Alzheimers’ disease.

Thank you all for everything you did - you played in our charity games, donated money, bought raffle tickets and auction items, sponsored tables, contacted friends, and worked together as a community of duplicate players and friends to make this possible.

You are an amazing group.


Swing Players Needed

This program is important to allow us to always guarantee a partner for players that show up without a partner. You can pick a day of the week, or certain days where you agree to come to a game and be a swing player if needed. If you play that day, you play for FREE. If you aren’t needed, you receive a FREE game pass for another day. So you are helping the Center AND earning a free game regardless of whether you play that day or not.


"ASK BRUCE"

You have questions - We have answers! As a member of St. Louis Bridge Center, you have exclusive access to one of the best bridge minds in the country. Bruce Greenspan has graciously offered to answer your bridge-related questions!


Free Training Lessons

We have a section on our website for local pros and teachers to publish bridge lessons for the benefit of our members. You can click on the link on the left to access these lessons. We encourage all local pros and teachers to consider submitting lessons for publishing on behalf of our members.

St. Louis Bridge Center is dedicated to teaching and growing the game of bridge in the St. Louis community. This is an excellent opportunity for experienced bridge members to share their knowledge.


Game Scrip

Remember to buy game scrip! They are available in packs of 10 for $90. Each scrip is redeemable for admission to any regularly priced game. We hope you find this a much more efficient way to pay for games.
