WINTER 2024 ONLINE LESSONS using SHARK BRIDGE
WINTER 2024 ONLINE LESSONS using SHARK BRIDGE

All lessons start in Zoom, then use Shark Bridge for lots of hands-on practice.  You can undo or replay the hand, and learn when Shelley demonstrates at your table. 

All lessons are recorded, so don't worry if you have to miss a lesson (I'm also very happy to catch anyone up).  You may practice playing the lesson hands after the class if you subscribe to Shark Bridge for $35 US per year (optional). Course materials and video presentations are available to all Registered students (through BridgeWhiz which is a National program sponsored by the ACBL Education Foundation).

Beginners: Play of the Hand Thurs 4:00-5:30 PT (Jan 18 to Mar 7)
8 weeks $160 Cdn/$120 US

The course focuses on the basics of Bridge, and proper Play of the Hand techniques, including Trick development, Promotion, Entry Management, Finessing, Holding up.

For those new to Bridge, I recommend that you download to your phone an App called "Tricky Bridge".  Modules 1 to 13 take you methodically through the absolute basics of Bridge and important Bridge terminology, to prepare you to understand the lessons more easily.
