• Note: Effective in January, the Sunset Bridge Club will be officially sanctioned by the American Contract Bridge League. This means all member players of ACBL can earn International Matchpoints which are recognized worldwide. Games must adhere to stringent guidelines for Duplicate Bridge and must be under the direction of an ACBL certified director. This will be a first for Kaua‘i and all ACBL members, both residents and visitors, can play in sanctioned games. There is no change for non-ACBL players who want to play, but they cannot earn International Matchpoints.
