The Hertfordshire Bridge Association (HBA) encourages the playing of bridge throughout the county. It looks to encourage the learning of the game and also the enjoyment of the game by all its members.
We have 20 affiliated bridge clubs and several of these hold a combination of lessons and other activities to enable individuals to learn the game and also to migrate to become full members of clubs. A summary covering all clubs is shown below and full details of lessons are available on the Club Bridge Lessons page.
The transition from being a student to participating in a bridge club session can be daunting and clubs take steps to ease this as much as possible. Unfortunately, we hear from time to time of new players at a club not enjoying their first experience and this does of course result in their not returning. The English Bridge Union (EBU) has a code of conduct (Best Behaviour at Bridge) which all our clubs enforce - but sometimes things do go wrong. If you become aware of any instance of this please contact the club contact for that club shown on our website – or contact Alan Woof (HBA Membership Secretary) directly in confidence on either 07714 430650 or email@example.com – and we will try and ensure that things are improved for the future.
Other ways to learn
There are many individuals who teach bridge. English Bridge Education and Development (EBED) who operate alongside EBU run training programs for teachers and also maintain a register of qualified teachers. The EBU home page on their website (www.ebu.co.uk) contains a link to enable individuals to find their nearest affiliated club and qualified teacher.
Contact details for all clubs can be found on the Clubs in Herts page.
