THE OKBRIDGE STORYbridge

OKbridge, Inc. is an online bridge club dedicated to serving the worldwide community of bridge players by providing a fun online game environment, superior software, and excellent service.

OKbridge was originally conceived in 1989 as a way of playing bridge online with partners that were separated by oceans. The first group of players were located in the US and Europe. Following OKbridge’s public release in August 1990, the idea of online bridge caught on with warm reception worldwide. These new players sent OKbridge a steady stream of suggestions — many of which were incorporated into the program.

As members brought in their online friends to play the game, the membership of OKbridge swelled. Due to increasing demands in supporting the online club, OKbridge conducted a survey in 1993 to determine if members would be willing to pay a yearly subscription fee to insure continued upgrades and support of the software, as well as, providing live customer service and other perquisites. The members approved of the idea and commercial OKbridge was launched in 1994.

Today, OKbridge is a true global community of bridge players with members from over 100 countries, making it the world’s largest (and oldest) member-supported online bridge club.
