Conditions of Contest

Like all Olympic sports, bridge has a precise set of rules for competition. The Conditions of Contest detail these protocols and regulations for every event played at the NABC. Whether you need to know the rules for General Knockout Teams or you are looking for specific information about Blue Ribbon Pairs, the Conditions of Contest will guide you.

Find a Partner

The online partnership desk is always available after the previous NABC ends. There will be an on-site partnership desk available during the tournament, which usually opens about an hour prior to each session.
