The intent of this site to provide a way to inform all Belfair members about all things related to Belfair Bridge.  There are various games available...some for women only and others for men only.  But there are mixed games as well.

Bridge Games & Lessons

Belfair is a great place to play golf, tennis, bike or do any of the many other opportunities for physical exercise.  Let's not forget the ole noggin though and exercise it as well with games like Bridge! The good news is that there are lots of ways to take advantage of this fun and mentally stimulating game in Belfair especially now that we have the Old Tabby room where men and women have access.  If you click on the Calendar tab to the left of Home screen on this site, you'll see a schedule of all of the bridge games and lessons.   Here is summary

Mixed Duplicate Sanctioned Games
ACBL Sanctioned Duplicate Bridge is played on each Tuesday of the month at 6:30 in the Old Tabby room.  
Master points are awarded and the cost is $3 per person.  Contact Ted or Betty Cooley at 843-757-8597 or Tony Schlegel at 843-815-3011 (tonyaschlegel@gmail.com).  As this game grows, we will likely create two sections of A level players and B level players.  If you don't care about master points, that's OK.  Just come and enjoy the game. 

Practice Duplicate Games 

These games are conducted in a very casual manner to allow those who would like to practice their skills in bidding, declarer play and defense.  All are welcome to come but these games are primarily targeted to the students who have completed the Beginner Bridge series.  Mentors are usually available to answer questions during the game and those wishing to assist as a mentor are always appreciated.   These games are held on most Thursdays in the Old Tabby Room from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM.  Contact Tony Schlegel at tonyaschlegel@gmail.com

Mixed Beginner Lessons - "Learn to Play Bridge Workshop"
An eight-part series of beginner bridge classes for men and women based on ACBL’s recommended lesson plan and are usually conducted twice a year.  The next series will likely start in the fall. These lessons are usually conducted on Thursdays at 4:00 PM in the Old Tabby Room.  No prior knowledge of bridge is necessary to attend these classes. Contact Tony Schlegel at 843-815-3011 or tonyaschlegel@gmail.com.   We will be using the book “Bidding in the 21st Century”.  We look forward to anyone who would like to join us.  We also have table mentors to assist as needed.  

Group Valet notices for Sanctioned Duplicate games, Practice games or Bridge Workshops 
This automated application makes it easy for the game coordinators and you to ACCEPT or DECLINE a sanctioned duplicate game, a practice duplicate game or lesson. If you do not get these notices, please contact Tony Schlegel at tonyaschlegel@gmail.com. 

All of the dates above are subject to change based on holidays, when a month has five game or lesson days, availability of the game/lesson coordinator or possible clubhouse conflicts with room scheduling.
