Alzheimer’s SA: Playing Bridge for Alzheimer’s

Contract bridge is one of the most popular card games of all time, and there are thousands of players in South Africa as well as hundreds of clubs that new and veteran players can join if they want to partner up with someone and play a game – but contract bridge is also a lot more than just a card game, and research shows that it can be hugely beneficial to developing the mind in diagnosed cases of Alzheimer’s.

Here’s how the game of bridge can prove to be useful to Alzheimer’s research, and more about the American Contract Bridge League and the Longest Day campaign.

The Bridge2Success Fest for 2019

Fest

Are you a bridge player, or would you like to learn more about the game? Remember to check out the Bridge2Success Fest for 2019, taking place on the 11th of May in Warsaw, Poland.

You can find more info at the official B2S website here.

If you can’t attend (and even if you are), remember that the Bridge2Success initiative is more than just this year’s festival: It’s an overall initiative to see people playing more bridge in schools, offices, clubs and homes to improve their life and business skills.

Play more bridge!
