Pinner Bridge Club Online Mentoring Scheme

We have recently started an Online Mentoring Scheme.

Playing bridge online Bridge provides an ideal opportunity for less-experienced players to receive advice from a more experienced player.   The idea is that the you would play some hands together, and then be able to discuss the hands constructively. If you are interested in becoming a Mentor or if you would like to get the help of a Mentor please email tonystaw@bridgeclass.co.uk or call 0798 6543 628.  Free games are available to mentors.
