We also have a great feature in the Member Services section. Please login and use the "Find a Partner" feature if you're in need of a partner.

Conveniently located off Hwy 406, across from the Pen Centre in St. Catharines Ontario, we are proud to have nearly 300 members. We are a member owned, and volunteer run club drawing from the entire Niagara Region.

BCON believes in fostering the game of Bridge, by catering to players of all levels. We have games for new players, experienced "card sharks," and everything in between. Games are available six days a week, both face to face and online. Please keep checking our website for our up to date game schedule. We are pleased to have an active education program, whether you have never played cards before, need a brush up, or want to advance your game to the next level.

We hold regular social events to give everyone a chance to mix, mingle and make new friends. Please join our mailing list to receive up coming information.

We no longer have any covid protocols, however we do request that if you are not feeling well, even if you've tested negative for covid, that you do not come to the club.

Team Games are here!!
Team Games are here!!

BCON’s inaugural online Swiss Team game will be on Tuesday evening Sept 13 - at 7pm. It’s going to be fun; and we hope you’re looking forward to this new semi-monthly event. See the monthly calendar, here, for the dates.

We would like to run 2 separate games, but we can only do that if we know there is enough interest. For that reason, we are asking you to pre-register. Last minute registrations will be allowed, right up to game time, but our game setups will be based on pre-registration received by 7pm Monday before the game

If you would prefer to play in a game with an upper limit on masterpoints, please tell us the highest MP holding of your team members. We will draw the line according to the actual registrations received. If no limit is mentioned in your registration, we will assume you will play in the open game.

Register with Doug Dolbear: dougdolbear@gmail.com.  Doug is also happy to assist in forming teams.

But pre-registration does not eliminate the need to register online with BBO at game time. And team registration on BBO is a bit different from pairs registrations. Here are the detailed instructions.

Please register by 6:45, and note that, if you are offline when the game starts, the system WILL replace you and your partner. If that happens, the director will put you both back in where you belong as soon as you are seen back online - watch for the “invitation” . 

Feel free to contact Doug if you have any questions; we want this new venture to be fun for everyone. So line up your team and prepare for a good time.
