Stephen is a qualified English Bridge Union teacher. He has been teaching bridge since 2006 and currently runs all of Bridge For Fun's courses at Tunbridge Wells Bridge Club and Hildenborough Village Hall. The courses are very popular and early booking is recommended.

Stephen is also a County-level bridge tournament director and so is well qualified to run the gentle duplicate bridge sessions in Hildenborough and Matfield and the twice yearly bridge weekends in Peasmarsh.

He has recently completed a five year voluntary project regenerating junior bridge in the area. During that time, he introduced bridge and minibridge to twelve local schools as well as teaching at the Southern Counties Junior Bridge Camp.
