BRIDGE LESSONS
 
The Brentham Bridge Club committee is keen to arrange Bridge lessons . The intention is to run 2 courses, namely: A course of lessons aimed at Beginners and a Refreshers course aimed at helping those with knowledge of the basics to improve their game.  To help us assess as to whether there is sufficient demand to support these courses, there will be two  FREE  sessions in the Main Hall of the Club as follows: 
 
*  Monday 14th September 14:30  Refreshers Taster session
 
*  Monday 21st September 14:30 Beginners Taster session
 
If you are interested in either or both of the above, just turn up it will be great to see you. There will be a Host so no partner is needed. If you require further information please email BrenthamBridgeClub@gmail.com
 
Do spread the word if you know of anyone who may be interested in either of the above sessions.

National Grading Scheme

The EBU has launched the National Grading Scheme. Members will notice from their own membership page on the EBU website a new tab on the righthand side, NGSinfo. Clicking on this will bring up a page showing your grade, and the grades of your regular playing partners. Very briefly, your grade is based on your individual performances since P2P came in. The grade will be a playing card, running from a 2 ( lowest) to an Ace. In fact, the Ace grade is further subdivided into the 4 suits.
