Welcome to U3a Bridge Group

u3a Beginners Bridge (Online)

Unique Opportunity for Bridge Teachers/Helpers and Students

to come together to Learn Bridge 

Following on from the success of the Pilot scheme in 2Q & 3Q 2023, we are now enlisting Teachers/Helpers for the next course.

 

The course was presented online to 15 students by one Teacher and two Helpers and we are now looking for a similar teaching structure for the next course.

The course was based on students following an initial session of free self-taught MiniBridge Lessons on the NoFearBridge website followed by 20-weeks of online 'class-room' teaching with lesson play sessions on the RealBridge platform (see above).

This proved the feasibility of the teaching methods used and has provided a template for the next set of students to 'sign-up' in 4Q 2023 with the intention of starting online lessons in 1Q 2024.

We are looking for Bridge Teachers and Helpers who are prepared to commit to providing 20 weeks of online lessons - full instructions will be given.

If you are interested in teaching/helping and wish to attend a no-obligation information session, sign-up here 

The course is now fully subscribed and the Wait List is also full; we have had to put a temporary hold on this - we hope to open this again once we gain more teaching resources. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Under Construction 1 Q 2024

This website contains all the essential information about u3a Bridge.

Whether you are an established player or just starting out we will help you get more from Bridge - and the u3a ..

We hold an annual Spring Charity Bridge Festival which not only enables us to play other u3a members from across our four nations but also raises money for age-related charities such as Alzheimer's Research UK, Age UK etc - further details here 

Have you played Bridge in the past but are somewhat 'rusty' and need some assistance to help get you back to an online bridge table? We hope to be in a position to offer this help later this quarter. In the meantime, please sign-up to the Returners Wait List here

Our Bridge initiative to teach online Bridge to absolute Beginners has been met with resounding success, to the point whereby we were forced to 'close the doors' to newcomers. We have started teaching this new intake (of 30 students) and hope to repeat the format later in the year. but are in desperate need of Bridge players who can either teach (online) Bridge or help at the table. More details here 

 

Returning to Bridge ?

If you have played bridge before, but are somewhat 'rusty' and need some assistance to help get you back to an online bridge table, we hope to be in a position to offer this help later this quarter. In the meantime, please sign-up to the Wait List here
