St. Andrew run two classes from complete beginner to those more experienced who wish to play better bridge. They are hosted at the club on Monday and Wednesday evenings in a convivial atmosphere but where learning will take place.
The aim of the beginners course is to have the student playing as soon as possible. This will be achieved following the lesson plans of the SBU.
The aim of the "better bridge" course is to develop the skills of players who would like to take their game to a higher level. This will be achieved by concentrating on bidding procedures and card play lectures, followed by playing the cards on the topic of the evening.
On both sessions notes, advice and further tutorials will be offered to cement the learning process.
Joining  the lessons can take place at any time by contacting the secretary Biil Durning on 0141-563 6693 or alternatively email for more information.
