Naomi learnt to play bridge in her thirties and was fortunate enough to win her first ever congress which fired her enthusiasm to continue playing.

Simon has played bridge for around 35 years. He taught at the National School of Government for some years. He has been teaching bridge for about 2 years and he tries to make his lessons fun and informative. In his spare time, he is a guitarist and singer playing mostly Jazz, blues, folk and anything that takes his fancy.
Hilary first started playing Bridge more years ago than she cares to remember but her career as a Chartered Accountant and bringing up a family meant there was no time for regular bridge games.
Now retired from accountancy, Hilary has taken up the game with renewed enthusiasm and plays at least 3 times a week. She is passionate about passing on the joys of bridge to new players and so decided to start teaching in 2016 and qualified as a full member of the EBU Teaching Association in 2018. Hilary teaches Beginners and Intermediates and is keen to encourage her students to progress from the classroom into the Supervised Play and Normal Duplicate sessions at the Club. She is also involved in the club’s Junior Bridge programme.
When not teaching or playing, Hilary can usually be found at her allotment, experimenting with new varieties of her favourite vegetables.
