Designed to support recent graduates and novice players, there will be a lesson at 11:30 in the Gathering Room, followed by a supervised game in the main bridge room. Novice players will play 12 - 15 hands based on the daily lesson with an opportunity to discuss their bidding, change their minds and consult the supervisor.
