The masterclass, which will begin at 7.00pm prompt, will include Paul sharing fresh ideas on which card to lead, signals to your partner and most importantly, how to draw inferences from the bidding and the play, so as to place the critical cards.

Includes: Tea and coffee and bridge masterclass

Dress code: Smart

Update

A word from Howard

A large number were interested in training sessions at the Club.... Please click for complete report
