About the Project
BAMSA is working on an intergenerational approach to getting more bridge into schools, universities, work-places and community centres. BAMSA will produce research findings to be used collaboratively with bridge organisations to:
• Transform the image of bridge
• Increase participation
• Enhance the sustainability of the mind-sport.
Bridge as a partnership game of incomplete information is ideal for developing analytical thinking and strategic planning as well as fostering life skills such as empathy and cooperation. In today’s digitally focused but socially isolated world, bridge can help to combat loneliness by enabling a sense of connection and belonging. The sociology of bridge project is researching transferable life skills and benefits of bridge as a mind-sport.
BAMSA strives to enable the game of bridge to be taken seriously as a mind-sport, both in academia and in wider society. It explores the tensions and challenges present within the bridge community, highlighting the multifaceted and complex nature of bridge, grounded in robust, empirical evidence and research. Bridge enables communication and fosters intergenerational community building and social connection regardless of age, physical ability, gender or ethnicity. Bridge is a mind-sport for all ages and is perhaps the leisure activity to reconnect us with each other in these increasingly fragmented, fractious times.
BAMSA would welcome sociological or interdisciplinary PhD applications in relation to this bridge project. For more information about the BAMSA project see: https://keepbridgealive.bridgecloud.com/about/bridge-a-mindsport-for-all
