Welcome to our website!

Welcome to BCOH- a member-owned and operated  bridge club located on Houston's north side. Check out our news, game results, and upcoming events, and perhaps you will want to join our friendly group.

BCOH and COVID - A Message from our President
BCOH and COVID -  A Message from our President

 When a player who has played F2F at the club tells us of her/his positive COVID test, our practice is to notify solely the individuals who played that same day at the club.  Due to HIPAA confidentiality guidelines, we cannot share the name of said individual.  Everyone should have a valid Email address attached to the individual Bridgewebs account to receive such notification.

We  continue to require COVID vaccinations before entering the club.  Hand sanitizers are visible throughout the playing space.  Some players wear masks.  Some have asked about bringing personal bidding boxes, which is also acceptable.  We continue to be concerned about the health and safety of all players, and masks are encouraged.

All players are encouraged to read this news release from the CDC. 

Club facility news- improved air filtration!
Club facility news-  improved air filtration!

Gossett Air Conditioning performed their regular semi-annual  HVAC inspection in December. The system is working as designed, and the internal filters were inspected. The internal filters were upgraded to 3M Micro Allergen Extra Filtrete 1085D filters.  The new filters are more precise at filtration than the previous ones; see photo above, new filter on the left. Thanks to facilities coordinator Charles Woody for handing this important task.


In case you have not yet checked out our online games… we now lead with “CHOOSE HOUSTON!”. We want to draw attention to the fact that the support of local clubs is important for the health and stability of our bridge-playing community. When a local virtual club game is bypassed for an out-of-town game, we lose the revenue that pays the bills for our local clubs. Especially now, with reduced F2F table counts at clubs around town, virtual club game fees cover the expense of operating local facilities.  

Beginning Monday, August 30, the Houston pool (Apple, BCOH, Clear Lake-Galveston) offers open and IN online games in the morning and in the afternoon. Open online games are offered three evenings a week.

We Play Friendly!
We Play Friendly!

Do you remember reading "Highlights for Children" magazine?

If you do, I bet you recall the Goofus and Gallant page, featuring gentle suggestions for good and not-as-good behavior.

While Gallant might say "Thanks for giving our Open game a try!",

Goofus might say "Nah, I'll never try that."

While Gallant might say, "We are glad to see you at our F2F game!",

Goofus might say, "Forget that online stuff. Ugh! I only play REAL bridge."

Let's all try to be less Goofus and more Gallant. Some friendly messages:

Thanks for driving all the way to our club for a F2F game!

We appreciate your giving our online game a try.

We know you have moved out of town, so thanks for supporting our club by playing in our games online.

Thanks for being an Ambassador/ online game sub. You help us be successful!

Your financial support is a big help. Thanks!
