Bridge Teaching by Andrew Robson, Heather Dhondy and more

Bridge teaching sessions for club players - Dates for your diaries

By popular demand, we have arranged further sessions, with Andrew Robson and Heather Dhondy

Both are first class teachers and bridge professionals. In addition to being first class teachers both Heather and Andrew are world class players who are firm fixtures in the England Women's and Open teams. At the recent European Championships, Heather won Silver, and Andrew won Bronze, so have both qualified for the World Championships.


Heather will be teaching two sessions on the 8th and 9th October 2014.

The session on the 8th is aimed at intermediate players. This will largely be members for who are comfortable playing on Wednesdays and Saturdays. The session will last from 7-10 pm.

The session on the 9th is aimed at advanced players, who play mainly on Monday and Thursday nights. If you came last year, you will know what the standard is. There is no restriction who comes to which event, but to get the most out of this teaching, please sign up for the session which is best for you. There is no need to bring a partner, but if you sign up with a partner, the organisation is much easier! Charge of £5 per person to cover costs.

Andrew will be teaching on 23rd January 2015. This session is open to both intermediate and advanced players. The session will last from 7-10 pm. Again, if you can sign on the list as a pair that would be very helpful for the organisation. Charge of £10 per person to cover costs.


The club can take a maximum of 18 tables ie 72 players. So there will be a limit on numbers. These sessions are for club members only – we will not be able to accommodate visitors if they are as popular as before


David Telfer, will offer 3 evening classes on September 2nd, 9th and 16th 2014, covering Hand Evaluation and the Losing Trick Count. Everyone is welcome.  Cost: £20 to include a bridge book on the subject and all lesson notes.  Each lesson will be followed by supervised play with hand notes to take away.   All proceeds from these lessons will go to Cancer Research.  Further details can be obtained from David on 01243 783288 or davidtelfer@hotmail.com


Other sessions which the committee is planning to organise are a Pro-Am session and to set up a Buddy Scheme to support students and intermediate players as they improve. Any advanced players who are interested in supporting this, please contact Michael Cook, who will be organising this. Michael is on 0787 5313365 michael@hobsonarditti.com
