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.
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…

We’re back from 14 January with a new format for Duplicate Bridge – Deal & Discuss. This is Duplicate Bridge with a difference! First play each deal in our friendly and enjoyable atmosphere. Then take a look, discuss what might have happened, and learn from any mistakes.
As ever, we’re running lessons for all levels from absolute beginner to more experienced club players. Take a look at our courses for 2013. There’s always our option to learn in a day (‘Bridge in a Day’) rather than during a 6-week course. Find our dates here.
Courses are complemented by our practice sessions – Supervised Play. This is the ideal format to consolidate and improve – a learning environment with emphasis on relaxed and enjoyable Bridge.
Please contact us with any questions or for further information – we’re always pleased to hear from you!
I wish you all a restful and thoughtful festive period.
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
We’re excited to be using two fantastic new venues to teach and to play Bridge from 10 September. For most of the week (all day Tuesday, Wednesday evening, and Thursday evening) we’re going to be based at Henley Cricket Club. The pavilion has been superbly refurbished with bar and coffee shop and parking available outside. On Wednesday morning, we’re using the Nettlebed Village Club to play Duplicate Bridge. Again, parking available outside or across the road next to the Field Kitchen (an excellent coffee shop).
We continue at the Red Lion, Henley all day on Monday (including the evening).
Directions to Henley Cricket Club: From Henley, cross the river and look for a left turn just past The Little Angel pub and the road to Wargrave (on the right).
Please note that we are no longer able to use the White Hart in Nettlebed. From Thursday 23 February we shall be based at the Red Lion in Henley for all sessions during the week (lessons and supervised play). We have a fantastic wood-panelled room overlooking the river. Parking is available to the rear of the hotel.
We continue to hold Bridge in a Day at Hennerton Golf Club near Wargrave on Saturdays.
Our next term begins on 27 February and runs until Easter (05 April). We are running courses of lessons for all levels from complete beginner through intermediate to more advanced. Please take a look at our full newsletter for details.
Our supervised play sessions continue at the same times (Monday at 4pm, Wednesday at 10am, and Thursday at 7pm). In addition, Tuesday at 7pm is designed particularly for those just starting to play. No need to book or come with a partner – just turn up. Relaxed and enjoyable Bridge in a learning environment.
Don’t forget our 1-day option ‘Bridge in a Day’ – the same courses on a Saturday rather than over six weeks. Please see our dates below. We have a new format for 2012: Deals to Discuss. Play prepared deals then discuss what should have happened afterwards. The ideal tool to learn and enjoy Bridge at the same time.
As ever, we’re based at the Red Lion in Henley on Mondays; the White Hart in Nettlebed from Tuesday to Thursday; and at Hennerton Golf Club near Wargrave on Saturdays.
