Bridge For Improvers

The sessions listed below are aimed at newer players, refreshers and returners. If you know the basics of bridge come and play in a 'safe' group, where an experienced tutor is on hand, available for advice and support as required.

This so-called 'supervised play' is a vital step in gaining enough experience to play well at club level. We are always delighted to see new players and everyone is welcome to join. No partner required, we offer a hosting system to guarantee everyone gets a game at all sessions.
