Bridge Lessons

Bridge Lessons for Beginners

Malmesbury Bridge Club

Start date 1 October 2019

Building on a series of successful lessons at Corsham, Sue Phillips, Phil Russell and Paul Gregory will be starting a new course for beginners at Athelstan House Malmesbury.

Who is the course suitable for?

The course is suitable for those who have never tried to play bridge before, those who have dabbled with bridge before but want to learn to play Acol bridge and those who may have played a long time ago and want lessons before playing again.

How long will the course last?

The course is scheduled for 21 weeks with a following 6 weeks of practice play to hone the skills students have learned.


The course costs £8 per lesson. This is lower than many other providers simply because the teachers do it without payment. There is also a cost of approximately £24 for the English Bridge Union teaching book.

Aim of the course

The aim of the course is for students to understand the Standard Acol bridge system by the end of the course so that they are able to play sufficiently well to play at a club (Hopefully Malmesbury Bridge Club). Bridge is a complicated game which is why it takes some time to learn but once you have learned to play it really is the most enjoyable card game.
