At their meeting on 9 November the ABF Management Committee approved grants for the following:
- Trumps Bridge Club, NSW (to introduce beginners to the game by showing them bridge can be an enjoyable social occasion);
- Ballina Bridge Club, NSW (trial a 'Friendship Day' in their area to encourage more novice players to enter competitions and to work their way up the rankings); and
- Canberra Bridge Club, ACT (to retain more novice and restricted players through an integrated and strategic approach to teaching, mentoring and transitioning new players between levels).
Lessons from these initiatives will be shared via Marketing Updates during 2015.
Congratulations to these clubs and good luck with your initiatives.
