SUPERVISED REFRESH AND PRACTICE
SUPERVISED REFRESH AND PRACTICE

Our exciting new weekly session at 10:30 am on Tuesday mornings called ‘Refresh and Practice’ is proving very popular. Each session, which will be led by our excellent teachers, is aimed at refreshing your knowledge on a particular topic that you may find tricky or on which you may like to refresh your memory.

It is not a lesson or seminar. Before each session, you will receive notes on the particular topic for the week which you can read at your leisure before the actual session.

The 'Refresh and Practice' session will start with five minutes of Q&A (Questions and Answers) on the topic of the week.

This will then be followed by the bidding and play of 10 specially selected, pre-prepared hands on the topic for you to practice. All in all, the session should last between 90 minutes and 2 hours and will cost £7.

You do not need a partner. We will help to make up tables based on the registrations received and will look to have hosts available. The schedule for the next 8 weeks is as follows:

6 Oct  Counting Losers in suit contracts (Tim Chanter)
13 Oct Opening 2 Clubs and responding with a weak hand (Richard Banbury)
20 Oct Stayman including after 2NT opening & 1NT overall (Margaret Page)
27 Oct Defence Play- second hand plays low third hand plays high, when to cover an honour (Marianne Tudor-Craig)

We look forward to seeing you 'Refresh and Practice' your bridge skills. These sessions will require registration:  Please click the appropriate session to book     

Intermediate Seminar-Play-Review sessions

The Richmond Bridge Club teachers invite you to join them for the following seminars, every other Tuesday afternoon at 14:00.  The format will be a lesson of around 45 minutes, followed by 8 boards to be played illustrating the topic (about 1 and a half hours), wrapping up with a review of these hands (30 minutes).  All of the sessions will be online and cost £15 per person.

Book 17 November - Jacoby 2NT (led by Margaret Page)
