Welcome
Fast Track Bridge

Exclusively for quick learners who intend to do the homework, the new fast track bridge course from the EBU (English Bridge Union), presented by BRbridge will get you from not knowing Bridge to bluffing competence in just eight 3-hour sessions on Saturday mornings in Orpington this autumn. The course costs £70 which includes the EBU course book. 

Bridge is a great game with almost unlimited depths. It's fun, its social, it's great mental exercise.

Sorry: you won't be expert in 24 hours. But I do hope you'll be hooked! Between them, clubs in the neighbourhood play every weekday evening and several afternoons.

If you prefer a steadier pace, beckenham bridge club run beginner sessions and I do a follow up year as you can see elsewhere on this page. Why not call 07519985547 to discuss which might suit your learning style.

Evening Class 2017/2018

This year we will be following the English Bridge Union programme "Continuing Bridge". It is aimed at

  • people who can already play but want to do better
  • moderately experienced players who want an insight into the system most potential partners will understand
  • enthusiasts who have read too many contradictory books and need a consistent view

Sessions, which are on Tuesday evening from 7:30 during school terms with a slightly extended Christmas break, cost £70 a term. There is a recommended textbook which covers both terms.

We have a new venue, the crypt at Christchurch in Charterhouse Road, Orpington. Parking is easy in the suburban side-streets. The R7 stops right outside just a few minutes before the session starts.

 

Bridge is a Partnership Game

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.
