  Thursday Morning Supervised Play

Thursdays, 10:00–12:00
Teacher: Stuart Whittle
Fee: $17/player
Level: beginner and intermediate

Where: Italo American Educational Club, 75 Pleasant Street, Wellesley (How to Find Us)

Supervised Play is the ideal setting to consolidate what you’ve learned, increase confidence, and improve your understanding and expertise. It is essential for beginning and intermediate players. Like any activity, bridge requires practice. This is a real-time game experience without the real-time game pressure. Play random pre-dealt hands with an ACBL certified instructor discussing how to improve the bidding, declarer play, and defense, and teaching “bridge thinking.”

Come with or without a partner and you will be placed with players of similar levels.

To register, please email Stuart Whittle .
