Improvers Course


These three 10 week terms follow on from the Beginners’ course.  You will need a basic knowledge of Bridge to join.  This will follow the syllabus of the English Bridge Union  (EBU) Year 2 course (the ‘Green Book’).

Each lesson will last approximately 2 hours and consist of a presentation followed by playing cards in support of the topic outlined in the presentation.

By the end of the 30-week course you should understand the following:

  • Several conventional bids which will help to communicate information about your hand to your partner.
  • Improved methods of handling competitive bidding.
  • More techniques for card play when declarer or in defence such as signalling and counting cards.
  • When it is appropriate to ‘bend the rules’ using judgement.
  • More techniques for assessing hand values.

The cost of the first term is £85 which includes the cost of the EBU ‘Green Book’ and a year’s full membership of the Bridge Club.  The charge for each of terms 2 and 3 is £60.

  You will be eligible to play in any club session during the course of Year 2 and your tutor will guide you to the most appropriate sessions to start.
