Regional bridge tournament to be in Taos

-A A +A

Taos will draw an estimated 1,000 bridge players from across the Southwestern United States as the town hosts the seven-day Regional Duplicate Bridge Tournament (District 17), Sept. 9–15 for the first time.

“Bridge players from across the country have all been dealt a great hand by being able to visit Taos, New Mexico for the upcoming tournament,” Tourney Chair Winifred Stebbins said. “Bridge appeals to people of all ages because it requires strategy, memorization of rules, and promotes critical thinking. Plus, it bridges generations who can enjoy playing the game together.”

Reports indicate that the game is growing in popularity among young people, with bridge clubs cropping up in schools across the country.
In fact in 2011, the New York Times reported the results of a study which found that a group of bridge-playing fifth grade students in Illinois made larger gains on standardized tests than their classmates.
District 17 of the American Contract Bridge League is composed of Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona, along with parts of Nevada, Wyoming, Utah and Texas. District 17 holds six regional tournaments each year, each which are weeklong events. This is the first time the regional tournament will be in Taos.
