Open to all Colchester Bridge School students
'Quickstart' - an Introduction to Bridge
This is a 6-week course which assumes no prior knowledge of Bridge. The aim is to get people playing straight away.
The course begins with how to value your hand, and basic card-play
Then you will learn about bidding as a way of exchanging information with your partner
Although there is some teaching, the focus is on learning by playing, so you will be playing the cards from the outset.
All sessions are accompanied by information sheets.
(Quickstart students are invited to join the Monday night sessions to practice what they have learnt.
If you then want to learn more, the 'Beginning Bridge' foundation course takes you through everything you need to know to play a reasonable game of Bridge at a Bridge club)
Refresh and Progress
This is a 10-week revision course for those who have attended classes previously and want to improve their bidding. It is Intermediate/Improver level, and aims to take players to the next stage
Formal teaching will be kept to a minimum. The sessions start with a short orientation quiz, and then concentrate on bidding and discussion of set hands.
(N.B. This course is not suitable as an introduction to Bridge or for those who have been away from the game for a long time - consider joining a Beginners module instead)
