Collegiate Bridge Bowl

Upcoming Events (CSS and Back Button)


Come Play in the 2022 Bridge Bowl in Providence July 21-23!

Each summer at the Collegiate Bridge Bowl, bridge players from colleges across the continent gather to meet, play and compete for scholarships provided by the ACBL Educational Foundation.

Six college teams and 12 college pairs have already won travel packages, but even if you don’t win a travel package you can still come and play!

Any team or pair who did not win a travel package can still participate in the Collegiate Bridge Bowl, and there will be no entry fees for the events (must be an ACBL member). Registration closes Tuesday, July 5. Register by June 15 to ensure a t-shirt in your size. Walk-up participants will be allowed only if space permits and must show proof of college enrollment. Team events will begin July 21st and Pair events on July 22nd.

Team Travel Package Recap

23 teams from 13 schools competed in our two special team tournaments, and six of these teams won travel packages to the Collegiate Bridge Bowl in Providence this summer.

Congratulations to: Brown University, Carnegie Mellon University, Northwestern University, UC Berkeley, UC Santa Barbara and Washington University in St. Louis.
Travel package winners are expected to play each day they are at the tournament, so if a team is knocked out after the Swiss round in Day 1, they must play as pairs in the Day 2 pair events (in the event of a five-man team, at least four team members must play in the pairs games).
