The Beverly Hills Bridge Club (BHBC), a leading duplicate bridge club, has appointed John Ramos as club manager.

“John has become an invaluable part of the BHBC expansion in recent years,” said Alan Schneider, BHBC board chair. “As a bridge professional, John is both a leading tournament player and highly regarded instructor, making him uniquely qualified for this role. He was the unanimous choice to lead the club during our next phase of growth.”

“John has been instrumental in developing and leading our bridge Instruction curriculum, which has been an unqualified success, bringing scores of new people into one of the world’s best games,” said Board Member Nancy Heck. “Our experience tells us that there is a huge demand in the community for bridge education, among people who have never played the game before and players looking to sharpen their skills. With John’s appointment we’re looking to further extend our community programs.”

“I’m excited about the opportunity to lead one of the preeminent bridge clubs in Southern California,” Ramos said. “In the past two years we’ve seen the potential to extend our outreach in the community, and promote the mental, social, and entertainment benefits of bridge to as many residents as possible. I hope that eventually we’ll be able to offer an educational program every day.”

The club currently offers competitive games seven days a week in the afternoon and evening, serving more than 500 people in an average week. Games range from novice level to competitive open games for more experienced players.

Another core offering is the BHBC’s signature “Quick and Easy Bridge” class, a free three-hour class designed for those who are curious about bridge, but don’t know how to get started. The club runs this once a quarter.

The City of Beverly Hills is currently developing plans to refurbish and expand its La Cienega Tennis Center at 325 S. La Cienega Blvd. Part of the vision of BHBC is that this expansion will enable the club to accommodate more players and offer more educational programs running concurrently with competitive games.

BHBC also hopes to expand its outreach into City schools, businesses and other community organizations.
