Welcome

Welcome to the Columbia Bridge Club website.

CBC promotes the game of duplicate bridge in this community. Our Club provides a range of opportunities for players of all levels to join in the play, have fun, meet new people and learn more about the game. We are a Zero Tolerance* club, which means we insist on courteous behavior at all times. Please read our About Us. CBC is located at 77 Brighton Hill Road, Columbia, SC 29223.

Activities include:

We hold a sectional tournament in the spring and fall of each year, and a regional tournament every three years. You can also earn points (higher than regular club games) at charity games, STaCs (Sectional Tournament at Club), GNT's (Grand National Teams) and other special competitions that are scheduled throughout the year.

*ZERO TOLERANCE
The ACBL is committed to improving acceptable player behavior at all times.

The ultimate purpose of the Zero Tolerance policy is to create a much more pleasant atmosphere. We are attempting to eradicate unacceptable behavior in order to make the game of bridge more enjoyable for all.

The following behavior will not be tolerated:

Badgering, rudeness, insinuations, intimidation, profanity, threats, or violence.
Negative comments concerning opponents' or partner's play or bidding.
Constant and gratuitous lessons and analyses at the table.
Loud and disruptive arguing with a director's ruling.

If a player at the table behaves in an unacceptable manner, the director should be called immediately. Annoying behavior, embarrassing remarks, or any other conduct which might interfere with the enjoyment of the game is specifically prohibited. The director has the authority to assess disciplinary penalties.
