WELCOME

Welcome to StepBridge Australia, the only online Australian Bridge Club. We are a not for profit Bridge Club run by the members and affiliated with the ABF (Australian Bridge Federation) and SABF (South Australia Bridge Federation).


All players are welcome and we invite you to join us.  Go to the 'Get Started' button on the top menu and click on the 'Joining Up & Downloading the Program' drop down option.


For new players joining StepBridge, we offer 5 FREE tournaments.


Table fees are low for all members.  Click on the 'Payment & Fees' button for further information.


Most of our members come from bridge clubs all around Australia. Members are from all age ranges and masterpoint levels.


WHAT MAKES OUR CLUB DIFFERENT

Our club provides an opportunity for all bridge players to compete with players from others States and Clubs.  


It gives players from Country and Regional Clubs more opportunities to play bridge and receive masterpoints.  


Players who do not like going out at night can sit at home in comfort and play tournaments.


It also allows players on holidays to still bridge while away.


SESSIONS

We host green masterpoint tournaments several times a day, and have recently introduced both NOVICE and RESTRICTED SESSIONS to the timetable.


After the session, each player received tournament results via email.  Results can also be looked up on the website.  You can see games played card by card.  Also, you can look at how other players bid and played the hands.
