Learning Bridge at the Carlton
There are classes aimed at beginners and improvers.  Whether you are a complete beginner, someone who has played some social bridge or are returning to bridge after a long time there is a class for you.  The beginners class takes things slowly, but after the first 10 lessons you will have the rudiments of the game and can progress from there. You can come along at anytime to join the courses or tournaments.  
 
Each class consists of a lesson, a break for refreshments and practice hands.  Students receive lesson notes and a quiz.  Afternoon classes start at 1.15pm and finish about 4.30pm and evenings start at 7.00pm and finish no later than 9.30pm.  The cost is £5 per class and you only pay for lessons that you attend.
 

You are welcome to sample classes and join a course that suits you.  

 

The teaching prgramme starts in September each year.  From Easter to September there are beginners tournaments and some revision classes.  

There are also tournaments aimed at new players.  These provide a friendly and relaxed way to play bridge.  

See below for details of classes and tournaments.
