Aylesbury Aces will have a stand at the Aylesbury Clubs and Games Exhibition in the Friars Square shopping centre on June 1st from 10 am to 3 pm.  If you  know anyone who is interested in playing or learning bridge let them know so they can come to meet us. 

Special Teaching Sessions in June and July

On June 3rd at 2 p.m. the final session of the Continuing Bridge Course will cover Duplicate Tactics.  There will be four main sections: Duplicate bridge and winning strategy, the part score battle, competitive bidding and sacrifice bidding.  I will also cover scoring and interpreting the results.

On July 1st at 10 a.m.there will be an additional session on Strong No-Trump and Five Card Majors.  The session is intended for both those who want to switch to this system or those who want to understand what others are playing.  It will cover the principles of this system followed by some bidding practice and then a play session.  It doesn't include two over one.  You will need to book in advance.

Both these sessions will take place at the Oaks Cafe, Elm Court, Elm Farm Rd, Aylesbury HP21 7NQ.

Please get in touch at paulbridgelessons@gmail.com if you want to join either session..

New Continuing Bridge Course

This is the second year of the EBU course and develops what was taught in Beginning Bridge.  It covers declarer play, defence and introduces some new conventions e.g. the unassuming cue bid.  The lessons will take place at the Oaks Cafe, Elm Court, Elm Farm Rd, Aylesbury HP21 7NQ on a Monday afternoon at 2p.m.on a roughly fortnightly basis and will cost £10 per lesson.  To guarantee a place you can pay in advance in blocks of five - if you miss any of the five you will not be charged for that lesson.  If there are spare places for a lesson they will be available to anyone who wants to join on a first come, first served basis.  Please get in touch at paulbridgelessons@gmail.com if you want any further information or to join the course.
