Welcome to Birmingham Duplicate Bridge Club
Education Opportunities

You often earn better results when you play the hand instead of defending. Balancing is a strategy that will allow your side to play more hands. Keith Henderson will be leading FREE classes on Balancing in Contract Bridge on October 14, 21, and 28 at 6:30 PM at the club. All are welcome to learn the rewards and risks of this proven bidding strategy.


Classes have started and the students are having a fun time learning our
game. Should anyone want a refresher course on a topic, these are the
planned sessions:

Oct. 14 Play of the Hand
Oct. 21 Defense
Oct. 28 BIG Hands
Nov. 4 HUGE Hands
Nov. 11 Blackwood and Gerber
Nov. 18 Rebids and Review
Dec. 2 Scoring and More Defense (This is the final class)
The classes meet in the Education Center.
Get the word out to friends and family, or to strangers that you meet
on the street, that these classes are starting soon. Our members are
great recruiters!

Plans for the next Birmingham Regional have begun!!

Oh, Oh, Oh, it’s Magic! Please Help Us Advertise Our 2020 Regional

Believe it or not, we are already making plans for the Magic City Regional during

the week of March 2-8, 2020, and you can help us spread the word. When you

go to a tournament, wear a button advertising our event, and take business cards

to give to people that you meet from other clubs. The cards and buttons are

located on the shelf that holds the pencil sharpener and timer. We have plenty of

cards to distribute and about 50 buttons for tournament-goers. In addition, let co-

chairs Martha Chitwood or Beth Stewart know if you are heading to a tournament

that will allow us to hang our banner. We’d love for you to take it.

Thanks for your help. It’s going to be a magical event!
