Diamond Jubilee: 2021 is the Bolton BC's 75th anniversary. We will be holding a series of events during the year to celebrate this milestone!
BPS Spring Competitions 2021

The new series of Lancashire BPS competition events starts in February. They are open to all registered BPS online players. The Open Championships will be held on the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month over 6 sessions. The Mens, Ladies and Mixed competitions will be held on the 2nd Wednesday respectively of each month.

Open Championship Monday Feb 1,15, March 1,15, April 5,19
Men’s Pairs Championship Wednesday February 10th
Ladies Pairs Championship Wednesday March 10th
Mixed Pairs Championship Wednesday April 14th

Anybody can play on any of these dates but a prize will be given for the best pair in the category Open and Under 10 (average for the pair) In the relevant month. No pair can win more than one prize so if an Under 10 pair is the overall winner they will not count in the Under 10. Prizes will be given in the form of a free BPS session. Any disputes will be decided by the BPS committee whose decision is final. All winners appear on the Southport BPS Honors Board.

It is with great sadness that we announce the recent death of a long-time member:

John Kohorn enjoyed playing bridge regularly at Bolton for many years.  A gentlemen at the table, John was a good and competitve player who was always keen to understand how he could have played each hand better.  John's health had suffered over recent months and he passed away peacefully earlier this week.  Our thoughts and sympathy go to his family and friends.

NewsLetter 13 Jan 2021
Hopefully this newsletter finds you safe and well, on a rainy day.
From February onwards we will be changing the Tournament Directors on the Lancashire BPS games to a group of well regarded TDs who manage EBU, national and regional events.  This change to a paid BBO service, will enable us to have a higher number of tables per session and avoid the issues we have had when BBO becomes very busy.  As players you should see little change other than the name of the TDs.  Bolton games will continue to be run by our own group of volunteer TDs.
Please still use "BPS" or "Bolton" when you are searching for sessions on BBO.
This change does mean our costs will go up and we are likely to have to make a small price increase for games from March onwards.  More information will be shared nearer the time.
  • We have seen a lot of interest in holding special events, like our Christmas party using Realbridge, and so we are looking at using this service for one-off events over the next few months - watch this space.
  • The take-up of the Friday evening Lancashire events was fairly limited, and so these are stopping for the moment.  We know we have some demand for an open session on a Friday and are looking at how best to do this. 
Thank you for supporting our online bridge.  We hope you continue to enjoy it.
