New Learning Opportunities

We are happy to provide the following offerings:  

  • New beginner bridge classes began at the center on Monday, January 30th at 9:00 AM and on Thursday, February 2nd at 7:00 PM. The Monday morning classes are being taught by Marsha Wicks and the Thursday evening classes are being taught by Glen Martin. Please let everyone interested in learning to play bridge about these new classes. This week is last week for new students to join the classes.  Lessons are $100 and we accept cash and checks.

  • While we are having Beginner lessons there will NOT be any Newcomer Games on Mondays at 9:00 am.  However, we will continue to have Newcomer Games on Saturday Mornings at 10:00Come 15 minutes early for a free bridge lesson.

  • The North Orlando Bridge Center is pleased to offer a workshop series on minor suit auctions.  The goal of the workshop series is to help intermediate and advanced players raise their game.  Each workshop includes instruction points to bid more accurately, written notes, and supervised play. These workshops are on Thursdays and the cost is $10/workshop. The workshop is 2hours from 9:30 to 11:30 AM. David Loeb, one of our members and a very gifted teacher and player is conducting the workshops. I promise you a very rewarding experience and your bridge game will be forever grateful. Come and bring your partner and let's learn how to do things the correct way as we play this most wonderful game. So for all of you who are really good players, come and learn even more. 

  • A course specifically designed to allow you to brush up on your basic skills as bridge players is being taught on Friday mornings at 9:30 AM.  Each workshop is a "stand alone" topic and is designed to "Polish Your Basics".  There will be instruction, played hands, and handouts provided.  Cost is $10 per workshop.

  • We are offering Social Bridge on Mondays from 3:15 to 5:45 pm and on Tuesdays from 12:30 to 3:00 pm.  This is "Fun Bridge" where you are allowed to talk more, play at a more leisurely pace, take breaks more often, and be under less pressure.  We also provide partners and an experienced bridge player to assist.  The fees for these games are half our normal game fees as they do not award master points, not require an ACBL director, nor incur any ACBL fees.  If you are interested in playing this "social duplicate" bridge, please come or send an e-mail to northorlandobridge@gmail.com with "Social Bridge" in the subject line.
