The Beverly Hills Bridge Club has announced the appointment of John Ramos as club manager.
“John has become an invaluable part of the BHBC expansion in recent years,” said Alan Schneider, chair of the BHBC board. “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,” board member Nancy Heck added. “Our experience tells us that there is a huge demand within the Beverly Hills 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.”
The nonprofit Beverly Hills Bridge Club offers competitive games seven days a week in the afternoon and evening. It serves over 500 people during an average week. Games range from novice level to competitive open games for more experienced players.
BHBC also offers its “Quick and Easy Bridge” class, a free three-hour class for people curious about bridge but don’t know how to get started. The class is offered on a quarterly basis.
“I’m very excited about the opportunity to be leading 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 within the community and to 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 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 the expansion will enable the club to accommodate more players and offer more educational programs concurrently with competitive games. Another component of the club’s vision for the future is to extend its outreach into Beverly Hills schools, businesses and community organizations.
