Playing bridge stimulates your brain and helps keep your
memory active and your brain alert. It requires you to use math,
strategy and concentration. There is an old saying “use it or lose it.”
Playing bridge helps you to “use it." While you are playing bridge
your brain is kept fully active, working out your hand, working out your
best approach to bidding, following your partner’s bidding and working
out how your partner’s hand fits with yours. Finally, when you
are actually playing or defending the hand, working out the best
strategy for maximizing the number of tricks won by you and your partner.
Are there any other health benefits to playing bridge?
Yes! You will be meeting people and enjoying an active social life.
You will be engaging in conversations and getting out
and about – which will help keep you physically active too.
