Welcome to the BR bridge web site.
Bridge is a card game. Perhaps THE card game. It's really easy to get started but endlessly fascinating and challenging.
BR bridge is all about bridge training and is the place for you if...
♣ you want to learn bridge right from the beginning
♦ you already know how to play but want to improve to feel confident to join a club
♥ you played years ago (maybe children preempted your time) and want to resume this excellent game
♠ you already play in a club, perhaps after a year or two of lessons but want to do better.
BR bridge is probably not the place for you if...
♣ you like big classes; lessons usually have fewer than a dozen students
♦ you live too far away: BR bridge can deliver lessons and coaching within the London Borough of Bromley, including Orpington, Chislehurst, Green St Green, Chelsfield, Petts Wood, Locksbottom, Pratts Bottom, Knockholt, Biggin Hill, Crofton, Cray, Farnborough, Shortlands, Beckenham and a bit beyond, Sevenoaks, Riverhead, Otford...
♥ you are already expert; we know our limitations; if you don't know what the English Bridge Union's National Grading Scheme is, you probably aren't an expert, if you do know and are already an honour grade we probably can only help in reminding you what less experienced partners' might know.
'[a bridge] consists of two weaknesses which, leaning on each other become a strength'. Leonardo was thinking of the other sort of bridge, of course but in the game, the strength of a partnership depends on the predictable behaviour of you and the person sitting opposite.
