INTERESTING HANDS

We have introduced a new feature where you can send in the details of any interesting hands that you have played.

These can then be added to the new "library" that has started under the "Interesting Hands" yellow tab on the top left hand side of this page (currently the fifth one down)

If you would like a hand you have played recently to be included please forward it by email to Dave Debbage in the same format as the ones now showing.

PS They don't have to be the perfect ones - ones where you go wrong can also be fun and a good lesson!!

For all our members who have already switched or are considering moving to 5 Card Majors and 2 over 1 Game Forcing, this book by Neil Rosen is perhaps the closest to the systems taught at Manchester Bridge Club.

It is easy to read, structured and offers many quizzes and examples to test your understanding. Highly recommended!!

If you would like a copy please contact David so we can organize a bulk order from Manchester Bridge Club and get a better price.

OUR NEW BEGINNER'S BRIDGE COURSE WILL RE-COMMENCE ON WEDNESDAY 13TH OCTOBER 2021 AT 1.45PM

 

 

This initial course will last for 5 weeks and will cover the basics of playing bridge and will also cover how to play bridge online and using zoom/WhatsApp for future lessons on bridge.  The initial course is likely to have 4 face to face lessons based at Manchester Bridge Club with one lesson online (to help every-one feel comfortable with learning to play bridge online).

For those who wish to continue, there will be a follow up course of 15 lessons (partly at the club and also online) which will cover the basics of bridge in more detail with emphasis on how to defend effectively with your partner, declarer play and bidding (following the 5-card major/strong NT/short club system).

The most important thing though is that the classes will be friendly and sociable.  Bridge can be a complicated game and will stretch your mind, but we aim to make bridge fun to learn and hope you will quickly come to love the game as much as we do.

The initial course of 5 lessons will cost £30 pp.

TUTORS ARE: SUSAN TRIGGS & ANNE NAYLOR

Interested?  Find out more by emailing Susan on grasan@gmail.com.  If this time/day does not suit you please still get in touch as we may be able to run a second course.
