David gives a brief lesson at 1pm followed by Supervised Duplicate finishing around 4.15pm
Partners always found.
TUESDAY EVENING SUPERVISED PLAY CLASS & LESSON WITH DAVID DEBBAGE at 7.30pm
(Suitable for Newcomers, Improvers & Refreshers)
David talks for about 30 minutes on the topic of the day and then helps and advises during the following supervised duplicate. Partners always found.
WEDNESDAY EVENING SUPERVISED PLAY CLASS at 7.30pm
(Suitable for Newcomers and Improvers)
THURSDAY EVENING SWISS PAIRS at 7.30pm
(Suitable for Improvers upwards)
This is not supervised play but is an ideal stepping stone to 'the real thing!'
After the first round your pair is matched against players of a similar standard so it's a friendly and enjoyable experience but a good opportunity to mix with people who are more experienced.
♠ SUNDAY SEMINAR WORKSHOPS with OLLIE BURGESS from 2.30pm to 5pm (NB Occasionally also held on Saturday mornings - keep an eye on the Home Page!)
The seminar starts with a comprehensive topic discussion followed by numerous topic specific practice hands.

Ollie is well known to members of the club and runs the Wednesday Evening Supervised Play Class. Ollie plays bridge at International level and has represented England at both Junior Level and for the Under 28 Team including the World Bridge Games in Beijing.
Everyone is welcome to attend and you don't need a partner. You can just turn up on the day but it would be helpful to Ollie if you could let him know in advance if you are intending to come along by emailing him at email@example.com
