ABF Strategic Plan

Bridge in Australia 2022-2025

We are very excited to share our Strategic Plan on a page for bridge in Australia 2022- 2025. While the plan is in the format of an agenda for our organisation it really is all about our people whatever their role might be. Our plan is focussed on three key themes of Attracting, Developing and Retaining players, directors, scorers, organisers and volunteers of many kinds all supported by a band of committed and talented contractors. We all make up the Bridge Community in Australia around a game we love and want to share with as many Australians as we possibly can.

Our plan is for all of us, all groups, beginners and advancing players right through to our international teams. It’s for our officials and teachers and the hard-working committee workers and committed contractors. The pandemic thew a curve ball at Bridge in Australia and worldwide, an enormous challenge and we responded, demonstrating an agility that most thought was not possible. Online bridge saved us, but our home is at the table and so our new world will be combining all the great things that online brings along with our natural playing home at the table.

Our fifteen key priorities are targeted at helping us rise to the challenges ending up stronger in 2025 than we were when before the pandemic shook our world. We still have many challenges, and we need your enthusiastic help to deliver on those priorities.
