Summer Workshops

Workshops are held during the summer months on Thursday mornings at Trowbridge Rugby Club.

Beginners' Classes

Beginner's classes are aimed at those who have not played Bridge before or may have once learned the rudiments of the game but have not played for sometime. The start of the first term in Chippenham begins on the 15th September 2016. Classes run every week on Thursday mornings between 9.30am to 12.45pm for ten weeks with a break for half term. At each lesson there will be a break for refreshments. The second half of all lessons involves supervised play of hands designed to illustrate the lesson topic.  The cost for a term will be £140

Improvers' Classes

Improvers’ classes are primarily for players who have successfully completed the previous year’s Beginners’ course. However, they are also suitable for people who are in the early stages of the game and wish to improve and learn the latest systems. They run for two terms in the Autumn and Spring with revision workshops on a monthly basis during the Summer.  They are held on Thursdays starting at 9.30 a.m. They run for three hours with a break for refreshments.  The second half of the session involves supervised play of hands designed to illustrate the session topic.  Classes are held at Trowbridge Rugby Club.

  Corsham Bridge Club - Beginners' Lessons

Corsham Bridge Club - Beginners' Lessons

Following a successful course of Beginners’ Lessons last year, Corsham Bridge Club will be running the course again this year.

The lessons follow the EBU’s “Bridge for All” programme and are delivered by EBTA-trained teachers.  The emphasis of this programme is to have fun playing bridge, so we get people playing from the very first lesson and devote half of each lesson to supervised play.

Although these lessons are intended for absolute beginners, they would also suit those who haven’t played bridge for a while but now wish to get back into the game.

Lessons will be held on Tuesday evenings in Corsham town centre.

First lesson is on 27 September.
