All the players at 10CC started somewhere - learning the foundations of the game with friends. Below gives you an overview of the ways you can learn more about Bridge, whether you are new to the game or if you are an experienced hand keen to learn more.
We love introducing new people to the wonderful game of Bridge. We assume no previous knowledge of the game, or of card playing generally, and quickly get you playing. Then across 20 Lessons (Level 1) we explain and explore all the basics you need to play Bridge. Hopefully you enjoy these enough to sign-up for the next set (Level 2).

Not everyone has the time or flexibility to commit to 20 weeks of bridge lessons. Everyone can feel joy, satisfaction and sociability through any level of bridge. To help we occasionally offer "Crash Course Bridge" weekends - sometimes as short as over a single day. We don't promise to teach you all the nuances of Bridge, but we will get you playing and loving the game.
For more experienced players we run lessons getting into more advanced elements of Bridge. Led by one of our Bridge Professionals (often Simon - photo with dog Bobby supporting), the topic will vary by session. These sessions allow deep exploration of the great game of bridge. Even the most experienced amateur players can develop their game through challenging their assumptions on what is possible at a bridge table.
Supervised Play is playing bridge, overseen by a Bridge Professional (often Sean - photo) to answer questions and provide guidance. This gives a great opportunity to enjoy many hands of Bridge in an environment where everyone is encouraged to ask tricky questions. You can get immediate expert answers to the most basic and the most thorny of questions. The atmostphere is relaxed as everyone is there to learn and have have fun.
From time to time (although normally once a year) we will head away for a weekend in Aldeburgh (Suffolk Coast). We pick a teaching topic to focus on, for example 2019 topic will be "Double Trouble" as we explore key types of bidding Doubles. Our Bridge Professionals lead teaching sessions, we play practice hands, and we enjoy some light competition. It always involves great food and sublime countryside for walking.
