W B F PRESIDENT OPENS HIS MIND
(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.
