Welcome to the Official Site for the Richmond Bridge Association, Unit 109, part of District 6 of the American Contract Bridge League! Here you will find information on duplicate bridge in central Virginia.
The next RBA Unit Game will be Wednesday, October 8 at 7:00 pm at the Bridge Center. We are planning to have 3 sections by ranking if we can get at least 5 tables per section, so we’re hoping for a good crowd.
This game features a fun evening of bridge for all levels of players. We also have fantastic refreshments, so you might want to skip dinner.
Hope to see you there!
Congratulations on the new rankings for August and September for Unit 109 Players, especially:
Intermediate Classes ongoing
Sunday afternoons 1:30-5:00
Tuesday nights 6:30-10:00
Cost of Intermediate Games: $5.00
ACBL’s Hand of the Week is going interactive with the new Learn to Play Bridge software. This will allow players to play the deal and solve the puzzle. Be careful, because the robots will be programmed to play Double Dummy, taking advantage of any mistakes made.
Can’t solve the puzzle? In the tip section of the deal, you can locate a path to the analysis provided by the ACBL. After you visit the site and read the solution, you can then return to Learn to Play Bridge to see how it all plays out.

A big thanks to the Mid Atlantic Bridge Conference for augmenting our fundraising efforts to benefit Alzheimer’s research. The Longest Day Raffle, inspired by Margot Hennings, raised an additional $8,000 – 10,000 for team ACBL.
