Bridge at Ginger Creek invites bridge players of all abilities to join in its weekly and monthly duplicate games. All sessions are open to anyone who knows how to play bridge, and there are special weekly games just for novice and intermediate players. Winners and runners-up are awarded masterpoints from the American Contract Bridge League. Standby partners are available, and kibitzers are always welcome.
All games are duplicate style, which means each deal is played at several tables during the session. You don't need any special knowledge to enter the games. Everyone plays "regular" bridge, but the final scores are tallied using a comparison method instead of total points. Unlike rubber bridge, your score at duplicate depends only on how well you bid and play the cards you hold -- not on how "good" your cards actually are.
