First Class Bridge Academy and Club

Welcome to the website of First Class Bridge

Now the 26th biggest club in the country. 

 

There is bridge played at Barleylands every day from Monday to Saturday catering for every level from complete beginners to the very highest echelon of bridge players. Most sessions are hosted so you can just turn up and play without a partner.

There are regular starter courses for complete beginners and a number of supervised bridge sessions for those wishing to go to the next level.
