Condover Bridge Club celebrated its 25th anniversary in May 2014 
That means 33 years ago a club was started by founder members of

Bridge is more than just a game.....Its a new life  

Welcome to SmaxiBridge
getting started - from the very beginning
getting started - from the very beginning

First Lesson Free! - See if you like it laugh

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. Evening session gets hot sausage rolls and a glass of wine (helps with the memory)
You get notes and a printed flipper. You dont need a partner but of course you can bring someone along. 

Location will be Shrewsbury.

Starting September 22rd 2022

Thursday mornings 10am for two hours
Thursday evening 7pm for two hours

Total 5-lesson cost £75 including all publications
Do not pay anything until after the first lesson.
If you didnt fancy it after all you can simply email and cancel.

If you love the 5-lesson minibridge intro to the game each person has the option of continuing a full course on the same day (thursday)
This would entail six further beginners lessons running on from the MiniBridge
Lesson five teaches the transition from MiniBridge to grown up bridge.
