YEAR ONE SEPTEMBER 2015
From September 2015 we plan to run a Year One course. These are planned to start on Thursday 17th September at 1-15pm for 10 weeks. If interested please contact Ross Stacey or Mo Simpson (details below). The course is aimed at those who want to learn bridge from scratch and also at those who wish to improve their standard of bridge and ensure that they are taking the right approach to the game. The cost of 10 lessons is £60 per person. To run the course we need a minimum of 4 participants - course dynamics are improved with more participants.
We have successfully run EBU Year One and Year Two courses since early 2010. The format is blocks of ten 2 hour lessons over 30 weeks for each year. The course follows the curriculum laid out by English Bridge Union. From a teacher's point of view even we pick up lots of helpful tips each time we repeat the lessons to reinforce our bridge knowledge. We find our bridge improves. It is a learning process for all!
Bridge is a very social activity and your teachers (Ross and Mo) run the course actively encouraging and promoting the game, plus we always give individual help and advice when needed and we make sure that it is fun! We are both EBU trained and use professional teaching methods.
If you are interested please let us know.

In addition to a course we provide handouts covering four hands on a theme on the first Wednesday of the month
We are also currently running supported bridge on the third Friday of the month. We use hands provided by the English Bridge Union Teachers Association on a set theme and their purpose is to revise and build on your bridge knowledge.
The cost of each supported bridge session is £6; unlike the Year One and Year Two courses there is no need for "students" to enrol for the usual block of ten lessons. However when running supported bridge we would like to have a good idea of attendance beforehand to enable us to complete the preparation work needed. The ten sessions held from May 2014 to February 2015 were well received with good attendance. The format is a short talk on a theme followed by a play using pre-set hands linked to the talk. Notes are provided. Most of the session is taken up by play. Our second session started in March 2015 uses hands provided by the EBU. These hands are slightly more challenging than the first set of ten and incorporate some material from Year Two Continuing Bridge.
