Table Money

From the September 2023, "From Your President", relating to an increase in table money:

As you are all aware, inflation has increased the prices of everything, and the Club�s expenses are not immune. In order to maintain the high standards enjoyed by our members and to ensure the Club�s ongoing viability, the Committee has decided to increase the table money and entry fees for events. From 1 November, table money for normal sessions will increase to $10 ($8 for Concession Card holders) and to $6 for on-line red masterpoint sessions. Entry fees for events will be increased as the events roll around. This is the first time in more than five years that table money has been increased and we are confident that members will appreciate that this move is necessary, even somewhat overdue.

Members holding $8 or $6.50 vouchers as at 1 November can either continue to use them and pay cash to make up the difference, or can cash them in for MyABF credits.



Pianola is a website that allows members to view and analyse their results. This includes the ability to replay hands with guidance, indicating the ultimate result of playing any card at each trick. Pianola also allows analysis of your results, session by session and over time.

The TBA pays for Pianola membership for all TBA members. Pianola accounts are created using an invitation email sent by the TBA. If you have not created a Pianola account and don't have the invitation email, just email the TBA and we will send another. If you have created a Pianola account but cannot see your results history when you log in, please email the TBA and we will look into it.

Fun fact: 'Pianola' is a piece of bridge slang - a hand that is so easy it plays itself.


Bridge Library

The club has an extensive library of bridge books, carefully curated by our dedicated librarian - Richard Cooke. The library has books suitable for players of all levels. The library is located in the Vera Houdek room.

The library is for the use of the members. Books can be borrowed, but please read and promptly return your loans so that others can enjoy them. 2/3 weeks is a reasonable loan period.

A synopsis of the latest additions to the library is here. A full list of all 410 titles in the library, including commentary, is here.


System Cards

The PC located in the Vera Houdek room is available for use by TBA members. This is particularly useful for colour printing system cards. A laminater is also available, ideal for keeping your system card from getting dog-eared. A supply of paper system cards is also available for members wanting to do their cards by hand.


ABF Masterpoint Centre

The ABF Masterpoint Centre gives players access to a wealth of information relating to masterpoints. Masterpoints Lookup allows you to search for any ABF player's masterpoint record by name, number, home club or event. The National, State and Club reporting sections contain a range of reports including McCutcheons, Most Improved Players and Top 100 Masterpoint Earners. Masterpoint balances and reports are updated monthly.

Fun fact: As at 30 April 2019 Ron Klinger was the all time top gold point earner, with 7,692.95 gold points!
