Welcome to the ABF Masterpoints Centre web site.
The Masterpoint Centre is the home to all things related to masterpoints in Australia. Players can look up their masterpoints details, and clubs and congress convenors can upload files of awards.
Use the menu at the left to navigate the site. Clubs requiring access to the clubs-only features must log in first, using the link at the top of the page.

INACTIVE PLAYERS IN ABF SPONSORED EVENTS
1-Jan-11 It is important that the conveners of all ABF events check their entry lists for inactive players. ABF regulations expressly state that all players must be paid up (active) members of an ABF affiliated club in order to enter and play in any state and national championship, as well as in all congress-type events sponsored by ABF whether or not they are run in conjunction with a championship.
The web site is the best way of finding out about inactive players. if you search by name or ABF Number, inactive players will appear but will be marked as inactive.
11-Apr-11 As from May 1st 2006, the date and month must be included on the Player Details forms when registering, activating or transferring players. We would like the full details, but the year remains optional. It has become necessary to insist upon this compulsory inclusion because of the many duplications occurring.
We are not asking people to reveal their age, just the date and the month. There is no privacy issue here. Peoples' addresses are far more intrusive than 4 numbers which means nothing to anyone outside the Bridge administration, but are essential to us for the legitimate purpose of avoiding duplications.
