♠  "Introduction to County Bridge" ♠ 
Several of our top players have offered to host sessions on the 4th Monday of the month from October to April.  There will be 16 boards in play and this will be interspersed by discussion and teaching.  They will be friendly and fun sessions as well as being a real opportunity to play better bridge. 

Please come with a partner. These sessions are proving popular and useful.
