Beginnersí Lesson Syllabus
BEGINNERS SYLLABUS

The Beginner’s Syllabus is designed for those who wish to learn the game from scratch, with no prior knowledge assumed.  We closely follow the English Bridge Union recommended path to learning, starting with Minibridge. After 3 or 4 terms, students should be ready to join one of the Supervised Play sessions, and after 4 terms the Learning Duplicate sessions are available to those who are ready to start some (gently) competitive bridge.  The lesson schedule is shown below the cost is £150.00 per term
