Everything old is new again and this time itís bridge. Yes, Bridge. The game your grandparents played 50 years ago. Todayís youth are rediscovering the fascinating and complex game of bridge and itís pulling them away from the television and video games, out of the malls and off the streets.
When asked why they want to play bridge, young players tell us itís because the game is fun and that it gives them a chance to hangout and play with their friends. In todayís busy world, where many parents struggle to find quality after-school care, bridge provides an opportunity for their children to meet new friends, play a game and talk Ė all in a safe, controlled environment.
Whatís more, the game of bridge knows no geographic or socio-economic boundaries. There are no age or gender concerns. No physical or intellectual requirements. Any child can learn and enjoy it.
Bridge also helps surmount generational gaps. One of our parents recently shared how bridge has helped draw her family closer together.
