Bridge Lessons For Beginners

Our speciality is Learn Bridge in a Weekend.  Why not crack the basics in a single weekend and then spend future sessions actually playing!  You learn best by playing and gaining experience not by taking extended courses of lessons such as other clubs offer.

Our tutor Ned Paul developed this very successful course over ten years ago.  Many graduates of this course are now active club players.   The course runs several times a year in various parts of London. Hours are Sat/Sun, 10.30am-5.30pm both days.

Learn Bridge in a Weekend is an intensive but fun way to learn. The course is designed for absolute beginners but will furnish you with all the basic knowledge you need to start. On the course you will learn the basics of card play and bidding and by Sunday afternoon you will play in your first small competition!

No partner necessary, no previous experience required. You can come on your own or with a partner, or bring a gang of friends or colleagues.

Fee £125 per person. To check availability and book your place on the course email for a registration form or click this link (April) or here for May.  For further information send an email or telephone/text Ned Paul on 07792 715517.

After the course you should be able to manage a straightforward social game of bridge with family or friends.  You will also be welcome to join the Aces Hi! playing group, or take other steps to continue with club-based bridge. The best way is to join a weekly 'supervised play' game where you can play regularly while continuing to learn and we will give you advice about where you can find such games.
