Refresher Course

Richard's recent refresher course was so popular that he has agreed to repeat it.

The 10 week course will start on Friday 10th January and run until 13th March from 1 p.m. to 3.30 p.m.

The course is designed for

  • people who have learnt to play bridge, but perhaps haven’t yet got the confidence to play in a club session
  • people who have recently learnt and would like to recap their knowledge
  • people who play regularly but would like the opportunity to reflect on their knowledge and consolidate their skills.

It will cover all aspects of:-

  • opening bidding
  • responding to partner
  • overcalling
  • the competitive auction
  • basic conventions (Stayman, Transfers)
  • card play in no trump contracts
  • card play in suit contracts
  • defence techniques

The cost is £60 and you will need to sign up for the whole course. If you are interested please contact Richard on and then make the appropriate payment to the club account BACS (ac no. 02212602 sort code 30-94-30) or send a cheque made out to “Hitchin Bridge Club” to Richard at 12 Burghley Close, Flitwick, Beds, MK45 1TF.
