Northwest Illinois Bridge
District 8 - Unit 239

Unfortunately our clubs are currently closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Until we can get together again to play our favorite game we can play in ACBL virtual club games on Bridge Base Online (BBO). Click here to see the current schedule of clubs in Unit 239 that are holding virtual games on BBO. Stay safe and healthy and we will all be able to get together again very soon.

Welcome to the Northwest Illinois website. Our unit is one of five units comprising District 8 of the American Contract Bridge League (ACBL). The purpose of Unit 239 is to promote the game of bridge within the unit boundary - inclusive of Boone, Carroll, DeKalb, Jo Daviess, Kane, Lee, McHenry, Ogle, Stephenson, Whiteside and Winnebago counties. Our unit typically conducts 4 sectionals and 1 regional tournament(s) every year that are sanctioned by ACBL.

Not only is our June regional the biggest in the State of Illinois, but well known for its outstanding hospitality. Additionally, in April we hold our annual meeting, FREE lunch and bridge. The Unit has provided PADS to those qualifying games and also pays player STaC fees. This follows the boards philosophy of giving back to the unit players.

Results for all Unit Sectional tournaments will be posted. In turn, you'll be able to review the results.

It's our hope you enjoy and use this website. It should provide you with most of the information you need. If you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to contact any board member.
