* If your club is unable to hold an ACBL-wide event on the specified date and session, they may have an opportunity to hold a club championship game on that date during a different session.

  • Clubs may not hold both the ACBL-wide game and the extra club championship game.
  • Clubs holding the club championship game must have an existing sanction for that day and time.
  • The club championship game would be in addition to your allocated quarterly game.
  • The masterpoints awards for a club championship game are the same as a “fund” game – 63.6% of sectional rated black points.
  • There are no additional fees to hold club championship games.
  • Each club will use their own hands and the ACBL-wide game hands cannot be used for the club championship.
