About the ABF

Australian Bridge Federation

The ABF administers, communicates, fosters and promotes enjoyment and participation in the sport of bridge throughout Australia.

Our Vision : Australians recognise bridge as a sport which helps build their communities.


The ABF is a values-based organisation which is committed to:

  • being appreciative and recognising the efforts of our volunteers
  • being tolerant and respectful
  • being fair and professional in all our dealings
  • honesty and integrity
  • consistency in decision-making and problem solving; and
  • being open and accountable.

We run major events during the year including the Summer Festival of Bridge in Canberra, the Australian National Championships, the Grand National Open Teams and many others.
Some events provide “qualifying points” which allow players to qualify for a playoff event that determines which teams will represent Australia at international world championships.
