Learning Bridge and Improving Your Game

6 week beginners' courses

These courses are ideal for people just starting in this wonderful game. The first two courses for the year have just finished with ~30 people completing this introduction to bridge. See the flier for details.

Further beginners' courses are planned for later in the year. Contact Sue or email the tba if you would like to be notified when the next courses are scheduled.

Monday morning lessons

The Monday morning sessions (10:00am-12:30pm) are a mix of teaching and supervised play. Ideal for novice players wanting to practice and learn in a friendly atmosphere. A great next step from the six week beginners' course. Players are welcome with or without partners. Normal TBA table money applies.

The library

The club has an extensive library of bridge books, carefully curated by our dedicated librarian - Richard Cooke. The library has books suitable for players of all levels. The library is located in the Vera Houdek room.

The library is for the use of the members. Books can be borrowed, but please read and promptly return your loans so that others can enjoy them. 2/3 weeks is a reasonable loan period.

A synopsis of the latest additions to the library is here. A full list of all 410 titles in the library, including commentary, is here.
