Beginning Bridge - Year 1

This is a 3-term course which is for people who have absolutely no bridge experience but are keen to learn with other beginners. We start off by using mini-bridge, and then lead gradually into the language of bridge bidding. 

Each lesson will begin with a revision of the previous week's topic, followed by correcting the quiz. Then there will be a power-point presentation based on a new topic. Students will then be able to play some ready prepared hands and will be helped at any stage of the bidding and play.

At the end of the lesson students will be given quizzes and handouts based on the weekly topic. Each term follows on from the previous term so students joining in terms 2 and 3 will require some bridge or whist knowledge. 

Year 2 Bridge

This is the first term of a 3-term course and is for people who have been playing bridge for at least one year. initially we will consolidate foundation principles followed by modern bridge topics including transfers and weak two openings. We will cover declarer play and defence. Students will learn how to bid strong hands leading on to the excitement of bidding slams.
