Welcome to the Humber Bridge School. If you live in Hull, East Yorkshire or North Lincolnshire and are thinking of starting bridge or want to brush up your game, we'd like to help you along your bridge-playing journey. We aim to make it a long and happy one.
What a good choice you have made. Not only is it good for the brain but research in the USA has shown bridge to have other health benefits too. Plus, it's an enjoyable and social game (and you sit down to play!) It does not matter if you have no experience of card-playing so don't worry if that's the case. You will play a game of bridge before the end of the first lesson.
There is a Consolidation Course for those who have successfully completed a beginners' course. Or if you are returning to bridge then this may be the perfect refresher course for you as well.
This is followed by an Intermediate course to continue building your bridge knowledge and expertise.
Please contact us about alternatives if these are not suitable for you.
The classes are led by Penny Joseph who is an EBU-qualified teacher. Penny has been playing bridge for 22 years and says she still learns something new every week, "Bridge is a great game and one where there is always something new to learn, so you never get bored with it.
We aim in our classes to build up your knowledge like bricks in a wall, so that you end up with a solid structure on good foundations for your bridge-playing.
I can still remember what it was like when I was attending beginners' classes and appreciate the value of getting to grips with the basic system from the start."
More details below, and on the Information page.
Each course consists of two sets of classes, usually 10 in each. A third set of classes can be arranged to revise the course and practise what you have learnt.
A new course for beginners began on 23rd April. The next Consolidation course for "Improvers" and the next Intermediate course will be in the autumn. Contact us to book a place.
Lesson topics can be found on the News page and dates under "Calendar".
In conjunction with Hull Bridge Club, there are practice play sessions for you to practise what you have learnt.
Please contact us for more information and to register interest in any course.
Private lessons can also be arranged.
