Welcome to The Bridge School at Gerrards Cross - the friendliest place to learn to play bridge
New Beginning Bridge Courses for 2017

LEARN TO PLAY BRIDGE!

We are one of the friendliest places to learn to play bridge and are regularly recommended by current and past students.  Whether you are on your own or come along with friends, we will make you feel very welcome.  We will run two Beginner courses this year.

Evening course starts Tuesday 3rd October (7.30 pm - 9.30 pm)

Daytime course starts Wednesday 4th October (9.30 am - 11.30 am)

We are running 2 hour free taster sessions starting at 10.00 am and held at the Memorial Centre in Gerrards Cross on the following Saturdays

12 August   16 September

If you would like to reserve a place on any of these sessions then please give Rob a call on the number below or drop him an email.

Why are we the friendliest place to learn to play bridge? 

Quite simply we have the most competent and friendly teachers and our philosophy is to 'make bridge social and fun!   We are also very honest about how long it takes to become a bridge player, something not shared by other teachers.  So if you'd like to know more then please give Rob, Val or Tony a call or drop us an email.

Bridge is a Social Game!

AMERICAN THEMED NIGHT

We were again fully booked for our latest social bridge event, an American themed bridge night held on Wednesday 5th July 2017 in the Colston Hall at the GX Memorial Centre.
We enjoyed a fun evening of social Chicago bridge with various gourmet American burgers and we were spoilt for choice for dessert with New York Cheesecake, Mississippi Mud Pie to name but two! Here are some pictures from the night.

Our next social bridge themed event is an "Italian Themed Evening" on Wednesday 20th September 2017  More information on this event will be sent out well in advance of the event.

Future themed evenings can be viewed on the 'Social Events' page shown on the menu bar to the left.

Supervised Play Sessions

MONDAY EVENING AND THURSDAY MORNING

We run weekly supervised play sessions on a Monday evening and Thursday morning in the Garden Room at the Gerrards Cross Memorial Centre.. These are very friendly sessions suitable for less experienced players or those who enjoy a more relaxed pace of play.

Monday evening is a supervised duplicate session which starts at 7.15 pm and finishes at 10.15 pm.  We play 18-20 boards with a 15 minute refreshment break.

Thursday morning is our 'play and learn' session which starts at 9.45 am and finishes at 12.45 pm.  The pace is even more relaxed.  We play around 16 boards which gives time for some discussion and the chance to learn from our mistakes!  There is also a 15 minute refreshment break. 

Each session includes:

  • Advice available from an EBU qualified director/bridge teacher
  • Written notes on each hand, with suggested bidding
  • Cost per person will be £5

Come and join us for these friendly play sessions at the GX Memorial Centre!

THE BRIDGE SCHOOL GOES TO THE CARIBBEAN!

Rob & Tony took on the challenge of teaching bridge on the MS Aurora as part of P&O’s 24 day, Christmas Caribbean Cruise.

Sailing from Southampton we had lots of fun introducing beginners and intermediates to our particular style of teaching; fun and laughter but always professional. 

Since Boxing day we were island hopping from Barbados to Grenada, St. Lucia, Antigua and St Maarten, with lots of sun, sea and sand interspersed with the occasional rum punch!  It’s really is a hard life being a bridge teacher but someone’s got to do it!

On the serious side, we’ve had lots of fantastic feedback already: many people who are new to bridge but keen to carry on learning and even a few local couples who’ve signed up for seminars as well as joining our duplicate sessions back home!

Have a Happy New Year!

Rob & Tony
