Bridge 2 Build Your Skills
Bridge 2 Build Your Skills

The course is for players who  have taken our Bridge 1 course, or have some bridge experience whether it’s duplicate, "kitchen", rubber or Chicago. yes

The lessons take you at a gentle pace through the things you need to know about scoring, card play and the most commonly used parts of ACOL.

 There are ten, two hour, sessions, given weekly. There is a break in the half term week. You will collect colour notes, and homework quizzes to store in an A5 binder.

During the course our Wednesday Morning Friendly practice session will follow each lesson with a themed practice on the lesson topic.

You can take your binders, or other notes, and ask for help from the mentors or other players. It’s completely relaxed and intended for you to practice what you are learning.

You don’t need to bring a partner, there’s always someone to play with.

Use both the lesson and the practice session to get the best out of your learning.

By the end of this course you will be able to enjoy Wednesday morning practice, and to consider trying one of our competitive sessions or competitions.
