Tales from the Bridge Table

ENTER A BRIDGE COMPETITION WITH A DIFFERENCE

We seek human interest stories with minimum technicality and maximum entertainment that illustrate why bridge is a passion, not just a game. Submissions, anecdotes and other creative bids will be judged by an independent panel and prizes awarded. What is your best tale?

WRITING COMPETITION DETAILS

  • We invite you to write a story or essay of between 500 and 1500 words defining the nature of the passion for bridge as you have experienced or observed it. 
  • Alternatively, if not attracted to writing a story, you may care to offer a shorter piece, for example: your favourite bridge anecdote, a joke or poem, or your bridge partner’s most colourful point-scoring aphorisms. What was the funniest bridge incident you ever observed? What was the most amusing thing your bridge teacher ever said?
  • Your submission (de-identified) will be judged by an independent panel.
  • There are prizes for the top 3 pieces, plus other prizes and commendations:

                    1st prize $1000
                    2nd prize $500
                    3rd prize $250
