The group meets Weekly on Tuesday from 10.00
The name of the group has changed from Beginners' Bridge to reflect how it has developed. This
enthusiastic group now contains a range of ability levels. Some have learnt the game from scratch
within the group sessions and are now playing confidently. We also have those who come along to
brush up their basic skills in a friendly environment where there is always time to discuss difficulties
that are encountered in bidding and playing. There is also a group of novice players who are nearing
the end of the current beginners' course.
As the new name suggests we all aim to understand and play this fascinating game at a basic level, and
play those basics well in a supportive and non-competitive way. There is sometimes more "formal" teaching
input, but the emphasis is on playing.
A new course for complete beginners is run from time to time. A new series of lessons will be starting in Autumn 2017.
Complete novices who have never played Bridge before will begin on 19 September. More detailed lessons will begin on 3 October
They will proceed at a pace suitable for complete beginners. They are also open to those who would like to refresh their basic
skills or who missed parts of a previous course. If you are interested in joining the lessons:
