We are running a series of seven, two hour tutorials on Saturday mornings during the Autumn Term. These are primarily for students who have completed the Bridge for All year 2 course but they may be of interest to other players of an equivalent standard. Five of the tutorials will review a specific topic from the course, giving a brief overview of the material that was taught followed by themed practice hands. There will, in addition, be two tutorials on new ‘gadgets’ namely ‘Wriggling out of 1NT X’ and ‘Two Suited overcalls’.
Levels vary: Next Step+
Tutors: Ann Lee, Sandra Nicholson, Shirley Rawlings
What happens? In these supervised sessions, the time is spent playing a small number of boards (usually 8) that reinforce particular topics related to the improvers course (Bridge for All Year 2). Advice is available from the supervisor of each session and a commentary on the hands played is available to review. The session is not scored.
When can I play? Tuesday afternoons from 2.00pm until 4.00pm - as listed in the calendar.
What are the topics? The specific topics are listed in the calendar entry for each event.
Table money is £5. You do not need to come with a partner.
If you have graduated from a beginner's course and have started to play duplicate bridge you may be interested in learning more. We offer courses and stand-alone seminars, some of which are suitable for Improvers. Look for courses designated as ‘Next Step+’ or ‘Intermediate’, the colour code is a shade of blue.

The Year 2 of the EBU’s Bridge for All course runs each year in three terms of 10 weeks each starting in September/October. This course is open to those who have completed Year 1 of the Bridge for All course and to those with the equivalent knowledge of Bridge. This course is designated as Next Step.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further details if you are not one of our existing students.

Nothing beats experience at the bridge table to improve your play!
The club runs duplicate bridge sessions suitable for improvers. Look for the Learn and Play sessions on the calendar (they are in green) or review the session overview information elsewhere on the website.
If you have learned bridge through the Bridge for All Programme, you will know that both you and your partner are required to have a fully completed convention card with you when playing in a duplicate event licensed by the EBU. The convention cards (and system files) made available to you through these pages are designed to help you create your card and explain your system based on the material which you have been taught. Foundation Level is approximately the level which you will have reached at the end of BfA Book 1, Level 2 reflects approximately the level which you will have reached at the end of BfA Book 2.
There is further information on this and related topics on the EBU website from which this information comes.
