Once you lean the basics there is a terrific program going on right now at the bridge center on Thursday mornings at 9.  For $5 you can come, play, ask questions from knowledgeable players while honing your skills.  Every week there have been 3-5 tables of people just like you who want to boost their confidence by playing and learning.  The only way you really get better at this game is by playing and this is your opportunity.  No partners required!
