Play of the Hand Lessons

We've just wrapped up a great series of lessons on Bidding in the 21st Century for beginning bridge players, and some who had played years ago and wanted to get back at it. Many of the students want to continue their bridge experience, and, being of unsound mine, I have decided to offer the Play of the Hand lessons. These are from the ACBL series, originally by Audrey Grant.    

Please invite your friends who may be interested to join us. Lessons begin on Monday night, June 4 from 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM. There will be  a short lesson followed by playing of preset hands that demonstrate the concept. Lessons cost $20.00 per lesson. There will be no charge for young people, ages 11 - 17.  

Remember, it is through these teaching programs, and beginner games that we will grow our club!

The Common Game

 

Jefferson Bridge  Association, Charlottesville, VA,  Club Manager-Nan Massie

 

Welcome to the Jefferson Bridge Association, Charlottesville, Virginia

Enjoy real southern hospitality at Jefferson Bridge Association's (JBA) games where you'll find challenging bridge, gracious players and delicious refreshments.

JBA was organized in 2006 to add to the enjoyment of duplicate bridge in Charlottesville and the surrounding areas of Virginia. The member-owned, non profit club is sanctioned by the American Contract Bridge League. JBA runs five games each week and sponsors an annual tournament. The club offers many special events to award additional masterpoints to the winners and benefit local charities. 

On the first Friday of each month, club masters offer a forum to discuss and teach bidding systems and playing techniques.

ACBL certified instructors offer private or group bridge classes beginning, intermediate and advanced players.

JBA was the first bridge club♠ in the US to use the highly successful Bridgemate Wireless Scoring System for instantaneous feedback and scoring.  All games feature pre-dealt hands and hand records.  Results of each game are posted on this website.
