Brush Up Your Bridge

The club intends to run a course of lessons with the aim of helping members to improve their pairs partnership play. The course will be run by David Longley and Andrew Mitchell and will take place on Thursday mornings between 10.15 and 12.15 beginning on 5 March. Emphasis will be on the bidding and playing of selected hands, followed by discussion and analysis. The course will run for 8 weeks and there will be a total cost of £15 table money.

Participants will play as a pair, but we will try to match up anyone without a partner. All members at any level wanting to sharpen up their game will be welcome.

The course will only run if there is a minimum of 12 participants, hopefully more. This is an excellent opportunity for members to consolidate and improve their play with a partner

To participate please email David Longley ( or sign the list at the club.
