MY ABF – THE BASICS

What does MY ABF do?

It gives you a personal ABF account you can login to. Over time this will grow to be your main online interaction for all your bridge activities:
  • Manage your personal details
  • View your masterpoints
  • View, enter, and pay for bridge events
  • See announcements from the ABF, your State and your Club.
  • Participate in bridge discussion forums
  • Run a “Bridge Credits” account with the ABF which you can put money into to pay for your bridge entries
  • View your results
Manage a bridge event and accept online entries and payments:
  • Generate a webpage listing for your event
  • Manage online entries from players
  • Manage payments (online and offline) from players.
  • Online payments are made via the ABF “Bridge credits” system which removes the need to set up your own facility to accept online payments. Entry fees are credited to the club’s own “Bridge Credits” account which are then reimbursed to the club from the ABF (less a charge for transaction fees)
  • To maintain an account with your own details. This will make entering bridge events much easier than it is today.
  • To run a “Bridge Credits” account with the ABF which you can use to pay for your bridge.
  • To see announcements from the ABF.
  • To participate in Australian bridge discussion forums.
  • To be an early adopter of a new system that will become the norm for all Australian bridge players.
