You do not need to have a partner - just come along and partners will be found.

New courses for Beginners are held throughout the year at regular intervals both in the evening and during the day.

 

Details of these Courses, thier content and dates are on the Beginners' Courses Page.

There are a number of ongoing activities for Newcomers and Improvers:-

 

 

MONDAY AFTERNOON SUPERVISED DUPLICATE WITH DAVID DEBBAGE at 1pm

(Suitable for Improvers & Refreshers)

Partners always found.

 

TUESDAY EVENING SUPERVISED PLAY CLASS & LESSON WITH DAVID DEBBAGE at 7.30pm

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.

The seminar starts with a comprehensive topic discussion followed by numerous topic specific practice hands.

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 oliverburgess5@gmail.com
