(1) Many of the wealthy players who sponsor teams and the individual bridge professionals do little - if anything- to sponsor the game.
(2) Many National Bridge Organisations focus too heavily on top 10% of players and don’t understand their role to market & promote at all levels and provide programs to ensure the continuity of the game and that some collective effort by many of these bridge sponsors could raise the profile of this game beyond its current low level.

BRIDGE DEVELOPMENT IN CHINA
RDFZ, the High School Affiliated to Renmin University of China where bridge is taught extracurricularly with great success was visited by WBF President and WMSA president recently. it is remarkable that some 850 pupils choose bridge! The younger ones are introduced to the game through minibridge , while the older pupils are offered expert coaching which has led RDFZ to represent China at the 2011 Pacific Asia Bridge Federation Championships and win silver medal in the Youngsters category. Later several bridge deals were played both school students & WBF officials participating.
This is a prime example of how bridge should be promoted among young people, to the benefit of both the pupils and the game. As such, it can serve and stimulate similar efforts all over the world.
