What is Pianola?

Pianola describes itself as "Smart tools for bridge clubs and players." Visit the official Pianola website for a complete description of everything it can do.

The New Hampshire Bridge Association uses Pianola as an Internet server that:

  • Automatically sends you your game results by email whenever you play at a participating New Hampshire duplicate club or tournament.
  • Hosts the NHBA (Unit 150) membership database, which is entirely separate from the ACBL's membership database.
  • Hosts your personal account that records your bridge history among other things. If you haven't logged in yet, click the banner above, create your own account if you don't already have one, and have a look around.
  • Hosts the New Hampshire Bridge Association website (the website you're looking at right now)

For questions and problems relating to Pianola please use the Contact Us page on this site.

If you're a club director please read How to Upload Your Game Results.

Pianola Includes all New Hampshire Clubs

Our Pianola membership is the "New Hampshire Bridge Association," which encompasses all duplicate clubs in New Hampshire free of charge. Your personal results page includes all participating clubs at which you play.

The NHBA has a single Pianola subscription that gives all New Hampshire duplicate bridge clubs the benefits of a club subscription free of charge. Unit 150 pays a single annual fee that was negotiated back when we started. For each New Hampshire club to have its own Pianola membership would be vastly more expensive and less efficient. Each club would have it's own membership database and send out its own game results. Each player's bridge history and statistics would be for one club only and much less meaningful than those that include all clubs and the New Hampshire State Championship.

Pianola was designed for clubs, not ACBL units, and the user interface is thus still somewhat club-centric. There are pages where you have to read "club" as "unit."

Even though it's free, there are still clubs that do not upload results to Pianola. Only you can change this. Encourage your club director to upload game results. If you're a club director please read How to Upload Your Game Results.

Encourage Your Club to Participate

If you play at a New Hampshire club that doesn't upload game results to Pianola, please encourage the club manager and/or director to do so. The instructions are very simple and uploading takes only a few minutes: How to Upload Your Game Results.  It's never too late to start. For questions and problems relating to Pianola please use the Contact Us page on this site.

By the way, there are also players, club managers, and club directors who still aren't aware that this website exists. Only you can improve the situation. Ask everyone you meet if they know about nhbridge.com and encourage them to visit this site.
