Invite Friends to Play

Guest Player policy

Newtown Bridge Club members may invite friends who are not Newtown or Founders Hall players to be their partner in our Virtual Club games. This is a result of ACBL’s Visitor Policy that allows our club to admit a limited number of visitors.

To reserve a seat for your guest, email partner’s BBO name and the date and time of the game to director@newtownbridge.org.

Reservations are accepted as early as 1 week to as late as 2 hours in advance; you will receive an email confirming your reservation.

Have a guest but no reservation? Chat with vacb107516 (the club’s host) on BBO and provide the BBO name of your partner. As long as we are within our visitor allowance, vacb107516 can unblock your guest so you can register for the game.
