A very good place to start!

SmaxiBridge uses the national learning programme devised by the national governing body of the game, English Bridge Union 

The first step is learning the intro to the game - MiniBridge. You buy a batch of five lessons, each 2hrs duration.

Its all very social and good fun. The morning class gets coffee/orange juice and croissants. 
You get notes and a printed flipper. You dont need a partner but of course you can bring someone along. You can drag along your spouse (always welcome - they'll love it)

Location will be Shrewsbury.
For everyone's peace of mind it is requested that if you attend this course you are double-jabbed.
