Improving Bridge: Saturday 29 March

A quick reminder we are running this one day course, the last in our current programme, on Saturday 29 March. Improving Bridge is designed for intermediate players looking to progress further. It follows Developing Bridge and is the fourth course in our series.

We cover bidding and card play (declarer play and defence) including:

  • Limit bids – responder’s rebid (fourth bid in the auction)
  • Coping with intervention
  • When to draw trumps
  • Defensive signals

We have a few places remaining and it would be fantastic if as many of you as possible joined us. If so, I require confirmation as soon as possible. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Hope you’re all enjoying the sunshine this weekend!

Bridge in 2014

I hope this finds you well and enjoying Bridge.

Back from 07 January

First, a reminder that there is no Bridge in December. We’re back from Tuesday 07 January at 7pm with our usual format: a short ‘mini-lesson’ followed by Supervised Play from 7:30pm. It’s our established learning environment with emphasis on welcoming and relaxed Bridge.

Bridge lessons

If you’re looking for lessons, we’re offering the following Saturday courses in 2014 (‘Bridge in a Day’). All are held from 10am to 5pm at Hennerton Golf Club near Wargrave. The price is £75 including lunch and tea/coffee during the day. We’d be delighted if you joined us – all welcome!

25 January – Beginning Bridge
Our first course for those new to Bridge. By the end, you’ll have a basic understanding of Bridge and enjoy playing with family or friends. No prior knowledge or experience required.

22 February – Developing Bridge
Our third course suited to those playing for 6-12 months. We tell you about some popular ‘conventions’ and look at key techniques for Declarer and Defenders.

29 March- Improving Bridge
For those with a bit more experience (1-2 years) looking to progress further. We go deeper into the auction and focus on Declarer play to help you reach the next level.

All courses subject to minimum numbers (maximum of 16). Registration and payment required at least one week in advance.

Have fun over Christmas and New Year. Hope to see as many of you as possible in 2014…
