You can play in a specially created game on Bridge Base Online (BBO) called "SUPPORT YOUR CLUBS..." and earn ACBL black masterpoints. When you play in this specific game, you will be supporting your favorite club. The system knows where you play most often and will automatically support that club each time you play. Currently, three stratified games are offered at 10:00 am, 5:00 pm and 7:30 pm. You can play on your computer, tablet or smartphone.

If one chooses, a Unit member can use the "Contact Us" form under "About Us" on the website to submit their name, BBO username, and email address to the CCBA webmaster who will create a registry to help our members find local partners to play online. By submitting the form, one consents to having their information published. The Registry can be found under "Clubs" - BBO Registry on the website.

Games pop up two hours before game time and, due to high demand, we recommend that you are logged in and registered two hours before the game.
Register to play by either adding your partner's username (they will need to be a member and logged in at the same time to accept the registration), or click on "Partnership Desk" and either add yourself to the list of single players with one of the two options (pay for yourself or have partner pay for you) or click and "Invite button" to invite someone to be your partner. (To view a players profile, click on their usernames on the left).
Once you are registered, you can log off or do something else on your device. Just make sure to log back in at least 10-15 minutes before game time.
At game time, you will automatically be taken to your table. There is nothing else you need to do.
