Wimbledon Bridge Club
 
Learning 'Bridge'!

Lessons are just the beginning!

Initially, you will learn some Minibridge - a simple systems style to get an understanding of the principles of suits, tricks, trumps and how the game is played. Half way through the first course you will be bidding and playing in class and able to enjoy playing a social game with friends.

The club runs two regular sessions for learners and improvers. Both are supervised by Martha Jaynes, our wonderful and very experienced teacher, usually with a couple of helpers on hand too.

Monday afternoons from 12.30-15.00 - a great place to start practicing after a term or so, ideally with others from the beginner's class.You will sit and play with the same people throughout. This session is very social and table money includes tea/coffee and cake. 

Thursday mornings at 10.00 is a full  duplicate session at a gentler pace than our more serious games.

Your teacher will be delighted to talk to you about coming along to any of these sessions. 

 

 

Mike Dunstan

Members will be sad to learn of the death of Mike Dunstan on 22nd August.  Mike and his wife Hazel have been members of the club for many years, and Mike was a popular player on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons with a variety of partners.  His courtesy and friendliness to all will be sadly missed.

The funeral will take place at Randalls Park Crematorium Leatherhead on Tuesday 8th September at 11 a.m.  All are welcome to attend.
