  Sessions for less experienced players

Wednesday evenings

Please note that we are still developing plans for 2020.
We will publish details here as soon as these are finalised but there is likely to be a gap for some weeks after Christmas

We have now restarted training sessions on Wednesday evenings.
For two Wednesdays per month, we will be sharing the room with a club session.
On these evenings we will be running our Gently Paced Duplicate.
You are welcome to attend with a partner, but we will find you one if you turn up on your own.
Please arrive at 6:45. We plan to play about 15 boards.There won't be any tuition.
This is ideal for people who want to play duplicate bridge at a gentle pace.

When there is no club session, we can choose whether to run gently paced duplicate or supervised bridge.
This is suitable for beginners and improvers.
Helpers are available to advise while you bid and play each board.
After each board, everyone at the table looks at all four hands and discusses them.

Thursday evenings

Maureen Dalton is running a beginners' class.
The first term ends on 19 December and the second term will be from January 2nd to March 12th.

On the Thursdays outside of term time, we will be able to run other training sessions.
These will probably be supervised bridge, but the choice will depend on what the novices would like us to provide.

For further information concerning either of these evenngs, please email Maureen Dalton or phone 01392 221163
