Play bridge online at

I'm delighted to announce you can now play bridge hands online without leaving the Joan Butts Bridge website. This is a fantastic development that will allow me to incorporate more hands into my lessons and offer exclusive content, like more challenge hands, for Joan Butts Bridge members. Importantly, this change will make it easier for you to log in, register and navigate my website. 

What you need to do: 

1. Register your new account

Every player will have to set up a new account on my website in order to keep playing. Once you are signed up you will be able to play hands. You will be able to reuse the same email, password, and username with your new account if you wish.
If you experience any difficulties creating your new account or have any questions, please email 

2. Decide what to do with your existing Sky Bridge Club account

When you sign up with my new game system, you may wish to cancel your existing Sky Bridge Club account.  If you have a paid Royal Membership on Sky Bridge Club that you no longer wish to use, please be sure to cancel it or you will continue to be charged.

You can manage your account by logging into Sky Bridge Club and clicking on the My Profile link in the top right-hand corner. If you have any difficulties with your Sky Bridge Club account you can email

3. Start playing online! 

While we have worked really hard to make this transition as smooth as possible - you will have to do a couple of things to keep playing with Joan Butts Bridge.

To thank you for your patience, unlimited hands are free for all players until we are ready to launch the Online School of Bridge.
