Chat Bridge

Chat Bridge is very casual.  The purpose is for people beginning to play bridge to get together to play in a relaxed manner.  Instructors are on hand to help with the bidding and play of the hands.  Generally there is a theme as to the type of hands that are played.  One week, the emphasis may be on notrump bidding and the next week on overcalling.

You are encouraged to come and no partner is needed.  Chat Bridge begins at 9:30 am and runs to 12:00 most Saturdays, and from 6:30 to 9:00 PM most Tuesdays. Check the Calendar page for weekly updates.

 

Bridge Lessons Provided by the Club

Members of the Jacksonville School of Bridge give short lessons on:

   Bidding

   Play of the hand

   Defense

These lessons are given before the 199er games at 9:30 am on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

In addition, Chat Bridge is offered on Saturdays.  Chat bridge allows the players to ask the directors on questions concerning the bidding and play of the hand.  Each Saturday, the hands played have a theme that the player can practice bidding and playing.
