How to play in your club's hybrid game

You've done all the preparation and your club's hybrid game is about to begin. Joining the game from the comfort of your home takes just a few simple steps. Here's how:

Step 1: Log in at Bridgemate Play

Go to the Bridgemate Play website and log in with your Bridgemate account. You can see the hybrid games your club is organising.

Step 2: Join the event to access the game's lobby area

Click on 'Join event' to go to the hybrid game and access the lobby area. Here is where you meet and chat with other players, choose your partner for the game and wait until the game starts.

Step 3: Choose your partner and wait for the game to start

Once your partner has arrived, you can click on the 'My partner' button to create the partnership. Your partner may have done that already for you, in which case you don't have to do anything.

You are now all set. Wait for the director to start the game and enjoy playing in your club!


Your club may or may not charge you for participating online. Please check with your club for details. If the club charges you a participation fee, you may be charged before the game starts.
