Beginning and Intermediate Bridge Lessons

A four-week class on basic play of the hand will be offered starting Monday, July 9.  Classes will be held at Denver House of Cards from 12 noon to 2 PM on four consecutive Mondays.  This series is designed for newer bridge players with very little experience in playing bridge hands and will cover such topics as establishing long suits, leading towards honors and when to draw trumps.

For intermediate players, a more advanced play of the hand series will be offered on Tuesday evenings starting July 10.  Classes will be held at Denver House of Cards on five consecutive Tuesday evenings from 6:30 to 8:30 PM.

The first lesson in each series is free.  You can come listen and then decide if you want to continue with the rest of the series.  The cost for both series is fifty dollars per person for the entire series.

Six-week series on beginning bridge and getting ready for duplicate will commence the second week in September.
