Bridge Training...
Orpington Bridge Club is keen to educate beginners and develop inexperienced players, however lessons are given by one of the members acting as an individual and are not the responsibility of the club: please visit or email
The dark tabs below this Training tab are mostly for individual seminars. 
The top tab is the standard Orpington EBU Convention Card which is being developed alongside the bidding seminars. The idea is that scratch partnerships have a basis for agreement: if they haven't agreed otherwise on some bidding or play feature, this is what they should assume partner plays.
Minibridge is a standalone narrative for complete beginners.
The other tabs are the notes of the Bridge Refresher Seminar meetings: they will increase in number as the course progresses with the most recent at the top (sometimes the very top tab will be empty until the write-up is ready). Members are welcome to point out errors (substantive and typographical), suggest improvements and clarifications, and add lessons of their own. The eventual aim is to give participants an idea of what other players in the Orpington area might intend by their bids, to provide a consistent modern style of pairs bidding and eventually to provide a default conventions card so scratch partnerships have a basis for agreement.
