What Is Sportsmanship?

Good sportsmanship refers to fairness, self-control, respect and courtesy.

Next time you play, think to yourself:

1) Am I pleasant and polite whether I win or lose?

2) Do I have respect and concern for the rules and the director?

3) Do I have respect and concern for my partner and my opponents?

4) Do I help others feel comfortable and at ease so that they can play their best?

5) Am I concerned that the other players have a good time also?

We all play to win. We like win. We hope to win. A good sportsman is a person who also plays so that he, his partner and his opponents enjoy the game and the experience of playing and meeting other students who share a passion for bridge.
