RICHMOND BRIDGE ACADEMY

"Whilst I am emailing can I just say how fantastic the teachers are. I have done quite a few Refresh and Practice and the odd Supervised Play. Sessions have been led by Richard or Marianne and support given by Titch and I have to say you do have the best . "Outstanding, " if this was an OFSTED report.

I also think Refresh and Practice is a brilliant concept and I don't know of anywhere else that does it. It is also very well organized with really clear, comprehensive instructions sent out in advance" ('P', an RBC member).

SUPERVISED REFRESH AND PRACTICE
SUPERVISED REFRESH AND PRACTICE

This is a Supervised session at 10:30 am on Tuesday mornings called ‘Refresh and Practice’. Led by our excellent teachers, it 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.

11 May: Bidding after an overcall (Margaret)

18 May: Bending the Rules when Responding in a Suit (Marianne)

25 May: Leading through strength into weakness (Tim)

This is not a lesson or seminar. Before each session, you will receive notes and the 'Refresh and Practice' session will start with five minutes of Q&A (Questions and Answers) on the topic. This will then be followed by the bidding and play of 12 specially prepared hands for you to practice. You do not need a partner.

These sessions will require registration:  Please click the appropriate session to book by 4 pm on the day before the session.

"Just for you to know, once we switch to playing physically at the club, even though Richmond is not (currently) next door to where I live, I have every intention of making the trip to Richmond as I am finding the learning experience / the way the course is structured incredible and the teachers approachable and dedicated beyond expectations. There are very few positive things that have come out of lockdown but being introduced by a long-time friend to RBC is undeniably one of them. " (A Student of Richmond Bridge Academy)
