Does Bridge have Teams?

Bridge is a very successful International game that thrives on the teams format.

  • Very financially secure – no begging for handouts from the government.
  • Owning heaps of real estate all around the world
  • Attracting people who are willing to pay for organized Team events
  • No rating prizes – of course – duh!
  • Run like a business – not like a bunch of sailors on shore leave.
  • Massive Bridge/Tourism industry as a stand alone sector.
  • Professional venues – no school rooms for this lot!
