Friendly Practice

Practice for Novices and Social Players Wednesday mornings 10.00-12.00

  • Brief Summary of the Topic of the Session from a qualified teacher.
  • Play a set of boards ALL designed for Practice of the Topic.
  • Topic will be on the web site prior to the session.
  • During the teaching term, Wednesday Practice topics will follow the Bridge 2 curriculum.
  • During the teaching term Monday Practice topics will follow the Bridge 3 curriculum.
  • This is an excellent chance to reinforce your learning, or to revise the material, or just have fun ensuring your understanding of the basics.

  • There is a host, so you do not have to bring a partner.
  • There is a break with coffee, tea and biscuits.
  • The session is scored so that you see the effect of your play on the score. However, because it is an assisted session there are no EBU Master Points to be had and the results do not contribute to your National Grade. The sessions are recorded with the EBU and do attract magazine points.
  • Both Club Members and Visitors are welcome at these practice sessions.
