I started playing bridge in high school, but I lost my regular partner because he left school after bad GCSE results, and I entered university afterwards. I didn't get a long-term partner and eventually stopped playing it after graduation, and now I'm returning to the game.

I want to get a long-term partner to play tournament bridge as a sport. How can I sustain a long-term partnership, considering that I may frequently move cities every a few years or even months?

You can practise and discuss system online, and meet at tournaments. It shouldn’t be a problem. Finding the partner is the harder part; if face-to-face bridge returns in your area, this would be the best place, if you feel safe going.

Face-to-face bridge will not return in my current area because we no longer have a venue. I will move to another place next year, hope that there is face-to-face bridge there.
