Bridge: A MindSport for All (BAMSA) has a new research animation based on their recent academic research:

Benefits of Bridge: The Partnership Mindsport

Click here to watch the new research animation that discusses the life skills that can be developed through bridge. BAMSA’s latest academic paper: Although bridge is primarily a mental activity, there is a physical element as well. Players expend energy and experience fatigue during a long event. The latest BAMSA paper discusses how they prepare for and deal with this both on a personal level and as a partnership. It is anticipated that this paper on the physicality of bridge could contribute to bridge being recognised as a sport. Read the full paper here: The Physicality of Mindsports Through Elite Bridge Players’ Sensorial Experiences: Presence, Confidence, and Bodies, in The Sociological Review. A two-page summary is also available via the Research section of the BAMSA website.
