Students always receive a hand-out of notes on the session and solutions to problems from the previous week, plus some new problems to tackle for the next session.They also receive copies of the hands they have played, together with commentaries.
New classes start on Tuesday 3rd Septenber.

People can then move onto Thursday evening which is a gentle introduction to Duplicate. Anyone can come along without a partner as the organisers will play if necessary. There are often nine or ten tables. Thursday members are encouraged to try Monday and Friday evenings.
Chris also runs a series of sessions for improvers throughout the year. There is about 20-30 minutes teaching followed by lots of hands to play simultaneously and discuss.
