Changes to the Monday - Friday Choose Houston Online BBO Games

Effective Monday, May 15, 2023, the clubs that offer the Choose Houston online BBO games announced that they are suspending the WEEKDAY MORNING games.  

We are thankful that our virtual club games were available during the early years of the pandemic serving Houstonians by keeping us “virtually together” and are grateful for all those who have played with us.

We will continue to offer the 1st & 3rd Monday night Mentor-Mentee online games, as well as the Tuesday night and Thursday night online Open games.  Kudos to the BCoH directors who direct these games.

If you seek a morning online game, we suggest those hosted by ACBL and other Virtual Online Clubs:  many levels of games as well as many time slots are available on BBO.  ACBL games are open to any player, however, you may have to request a "visitor's pass" for other online club games prior to the day of the game.

Everyone is Welcome at BCoH!

Welcome to the Bridge Club of Houston (BCoH) - a member-owned and operated bridge club located on Houston's north side.

Effective May 1, 2023, we opened our doors to ALL players with "No Restrictions".  This includes Club games and Sectional Tournaments as is allowed by ACBL.

Check out our news, game results, and upcoming events, and perhaps you will want to join our friendly group.

Everything that happens at our club, is because volunteers make it happen. Feel free to contact us for more info on becoming a member or volunteer. See you at the tables!
