Bridge Classes 2020/21

We have continued to provide online lessons throughout the Pandemic.

All our beginners have now become temporary members and 5 have taken the first step into online bridge and are thoroughly enjoying it. It has taken quite some time for our teachers to improve their technology skills but we have now got a full teaching programme.

Monday Advanced Class : 10.20 on BridgeBase Online

This is an advanced class where we play a Teams match then meet on Zoom to discuss and review the boards.

Wednesday Evening Class : 7.45 on Zoom

This is a beginners class where we consolidate the basics and help you improve your card play. We meet on Zoom discuss the topic and then move to BBO where we play 6-8 boards which are selected to cover the work discussed.

Friday Morning Class : 10.20 on Zoom

This is an improvers class run similarly to the Wednesday Evening which continues work on card play and introduces further conventions while consolidating the basics.

These are open to all Southport Members and visitors run by a group of Volunteers.

All teachers have Zoom licenses and so you can chat about any problems.

Further Information available from Sue Woodcock 01772 816734.
