Our evening classes are now in full swing at Gipsy Hill Hotel.
Beginners meet on Thursdays, and improvers on Tuesdays.

 

If you would like to join these classes late, or to take up bridge in the near future, please contact our chairman,
Clare Hamon, by email or by telephone 01392 758243.


Improvers are welcome to attend individual sessions at £10, but must book in advance, either by contacting Clare or using the form below.

BACS payment information - Sort code 30-93-14 a/c no. 02152900 a/c name Exeter Bridge Club, ref: your name.

 

Additionally the club runs two other sessions that might be of interest to improvers. They cost £2.50 each.
Thursday evening - Supervised Duplicate Pairs, when helpers are available to advise while you bid and play each board,
after which everyone at the table looks at all four hands and discusses them.
Wednesday evening - Gently Paced Duplicate, when around 15 boards are played over 2 ½ hours without tuition.

 

No partner is needed for either of these sessions or for the classes.
