Training Papers

The ABF together with the Friends of Youth Bridge Fund have acquired a series of training papers used by the French International Teams for Training purposes.

They come in bound volumes on the themes below comprising the hands for one player to bid one volume with his partner's hand and one volume with the entire hand.

These will be made available to any players with reasonable credentials to borrow them (international team members, playoff contenders, youth players, system developers etc.)

They will be posted to you for use for a period of seven days. Thereafter you are asked to post them back including unused stamps to the value of the postage paid for the hands to be sent to you .

If you wish to make an additional donation by way of additional stamps to the Friends of Youth Bridge Fund who initiated this venture that of course would be appreciated.

Please contact David Stern at and let him know with as much notice as you can when you require the hands.
