Register now for the June 2021 BAMSA conference

Led by Samantha Punch, professor of sociology at the University of Stirling, Bridge: A MindSport for All (BAMSA) is an academic, research-led project that explores the social world of bridge and the benefits of mindsport. BAMSA has three key goals:

  • to transform the image of bridge,
  • to encourage more people of all ages to play,
  • to ensure the card game continues to thrive.

In order to achieve these goals, BAMSA is establishing a new academic discipline, the sociology of bridge.

In June 2021, BAMSA will host the fourth International Bridge Conference. The event will bring together academics, practitioners and policymakers to exchange ideas, review case studies and share good practice. The event is open to anyone that cares about bridge and the sustainability of the game. Bridge players, teachers and organisers are all welcome to attend and contribute.
