In order to run hybrid games via Bridgemate Play, the Bridgemate Play functionality must first be enabled in Bridgemate Control Software. Read more about enabling this functionality in this article.


Make sure you have downloaded and installed the latest version of Bridgemate Control Software. See this article for the current latest version.

Start Bridgemate Control Software directly from the Windows Start menu or from your scoring program. Go to Tools -> Options -> App settings. You now see the following window:

Make sure "Enable Bridgemate app functionality" is selected. Enter your Bridgemate club account number and verification code if you haven't already done so. See the article Create a club account for more information.

Select "Enable Bridgemate Play hybrid club sessions" to enable the Bridgemate Play functionality. This automatically also enables the "Show session information window at session start" option. This option cannot be disabled when Bridgemate Play functionality is enabled. Press OK to save your changes and close this window.

At the start of each session, you are now prompted to specify sections that are played online. Should you want to stop using Bridgemate Play, simply disable this option.
