We meet to play social bridge for improvers in different parts of London including Holland Park, Paddingtonand Canary Wharf. Click the links or enquire for more info. Formal lessons for absolute beginners are also available.
We think bridge should be fun – we use congenial venues where you can get a drink while you play. If you know the basics, even at a most rudimentary level, just show up at one of our games and you will be made welcome and we will soon get you playing and having fun. Singles, couples and groups all welcome. Single players can come without a bridge partner and are always guaranteed a game.
If you’ve recently done beginner lessons, with us or elsewhere, or learnt some time ago and are thinking of restarting, we are the group for you. We will help you learn and progress; advice is available as needed at all times. More experienced players are equally welcome. Many of our players graduate to regular club games.
