The DBAA or Duplicate Bridge Association of Atlanta is the local name for Unit 253 of the ACBL.  The Association is granted some rights and responsibilities from the ACBL, but the primary focus is to promote bridge in the metropolitan Atlanta area.  In that roll, the DBAA organizes, promotes, develops, and manages many different bridge activities to benefit the area players and to encourage new players to join our ranks.

The organization is funded by tournament receipts and by a small percentage of our members’ dues.  We are always seeking volunteers to help us with this programming.  Please email:,  if you are willing to help.
