The Role of TBA
The TBA, under the auspices of the Australian Bridge Federation, is the administrative body for the game of bridge in Tasmania. As well, it is the largest local bridge club in the state with some 340 members drawn predominantly from the Greater Hobart region.
Local Tasmanian clubs affiliated with the TBA are Burnie, Devonport and Ulverstone in the north-west region, Tamar and Launceston in the north and southern clubs Kingborough, Eastern Shore and Hobart City.
The TBA is responsible for running national and state events including the Australian Swiss Pairs championships and the Roger Penny Senior Swiss Pairs competition. These are conducted annually with the venue alternating between Hobart and Launceston.
The TBA also administers the Masterpoints system for the ABF and endeavours to promote the growth and teaching of bridge throughout Tasmania via its affiliated clubs.
The TBA's new, purpose-designed Centre at 5 Marine Esplanade, New Town Bay serves as both our local Clubrooms and the headquarters for bridge in the state.
