ACBL Fall National Tournament in Atlanta

The ACBL 2023 Fall NABC will be in District 7 in  Atlanta. District 7 and the Duplicate Bridge Association of Atlanta are the local sponsors of this major bridge event for all players. We have just launched our website which will have all the information you will need to make your plans for this tournament.

The site:


The site will even have a partnership section to help you lineup partners or teammates for the tournament in advance. We have special events for all levels of players. THE ACBL approved a  new NABC level event for 0-6000 master point players on the second weekend. In addition, the site will have information about naming regional events or days to honor in memoriam our deceased bridge friends who were special to us. Units, clubs, or businesses also have an opportunity to be one of our sponsors.
