Back for Bridge

We’re back from 10 September with new venues, playing sessions, and Duplicate Bridge! As ever, we’re running lessons for all levels from absolute beginner to more experienced club players. There’s always our option to learn in a day (‘Bridge in a Day‘) rather than during a 6-week course.  Take a look at our Summer 2012 newsletter for all the details:

Supervised Play

There are now two options for Supervised Play, our relaxed and friendly practice sessions:

1. Learning and Improving

Designed particularly for those just starting Bridge and in their first year or two of learning to play. Sessions at 4pm on Monday at the Red Lion and 7pm on Tuesday at Henley Cricket Club.

2. Introduction to Duplicate Bridge

An opportunity to learn Duplicate Bridge – exciting and fun to play! Still our same learning environment in which to ask questions and discuss what might have happened. All welcome, including those completely new to Duplicate Bridge. Sessions at 10am on Tuesday and 7pm on Thursday both at Henley Cricket Club.

Playing Bridge

Our new Gentle Duplicate session for those who would just like to play Bridge. A welcoming and encouraging atmosphere with help on how to score and move. No partner required – come along and we’ll arrange the numbers. Sessions 10am to 12:30pm on Wednesday at Nettlebed Village Club.


For details of our lessons, please take a look at our current programme and information on our courses.

Jubilee Weekend

There is no Bridge on bank holiday Monday or Tuesday next week (04 and 05 June). We then continue with Supervised Play at the usual times until Thursday 21 June.

There are a couple of Bridge in a Day Saturday dates in June:

09 June – Refresh & Build 1 (revising and consolidating the basics)

23 June – Continuing Bridge (follows Beginning Bridge for those just starting and will cover gaps in knowledge on pre-empting, doubling, and strong twos for those playing for a bit longer)

Enjoy the celebrations this weekend!

Cancellation of Bridge session

I’m afraid we have to cancel the supervised play session at 10am this Tuesday (01 May) at the Red Lion Hotel in Henley. We are running as usual in the evening at 7pm. A reminder also that there is no Bridge at all (lessons or supervised play) the following week (from Monday 07 to Friday 11 May).

Bridge otherwise continues uninterrupted through to Thursday 21 June. Take a look at our programme for full details.  Be delighted to welcome as many of you as possible until then!

Supervised Play moves from Weds 10am to Tues 10am

Having moved from the White Hart to the Red Lion in Henley, we are no longer able to offer supervised play on Wednesday morning.  Instead, the same session will be running at 10am on Tuesday morning.  It’s the usual relaxed, enjoyable Bridge with the emphasis on learning and improving.  The Red Lion has parking at the back and The Riverside Room has a beautiful view of the Thames.
I hope as many of you as possible will be able to join us!

All weekday Bridge at the Red Lion Hotel in Henley

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.

New lessons from 27 February

Hello everyone!

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.

For further information, please take a look at our current programme and our courses.

Supervised Play 7pm Tues 07 February – cancelled

Please note that there is no Supervised Play on Tuesday 07 February at 7pm at the White Hart in Nettlebed.  Sessions resume as usual the following week (14 February).  Join us then for some Bridge romance!

Supervised Play for Beginners

From Tuesday 01 November we’re running a Supervised Play session designed specifically for those who have just started playing Bridge.  This complements our Bridge lessons and would be ideal for anyone who has completed our first course, Beginning Bridge (Red).  It’s an opportunity to enjoy playing Bridge in a relaxed and welcoming environment and to learn and improve by asking questions as you play.  No need to book in advance or come with a partner – just turn up!

The session runs from 7pm to 9pm and is held at the White Hart Hotel in Nettlebed.  The price is £9 (although the first session is included at no charge with a course of lessons with us).

Please get in touch with any questions or for further information.

No Bridge during half term week

Please note that there are no Bridge lessons or Supervised Play sessions during half term week (24-28 October).

Bridge lessons from 31 October

Our next courses of Bridge lessons start from 31 October.  These will be held at the Red Lion Hotel in Henley, the White Hart Hotel in Nettlebed, and Hennerton Golf Club near Wargrave.  We’re repeating our introductory offer which proved so popular: come to the first lesson for free!

For those who have never played Bridge before, Beginning Bridge runs on Monday evening and Tuesday afternoon.  No prior knowledge or experience of Bridge or other card games necessary.

For those looking to revise and consolidate the essentials, Refresh & Build 1 is held on Monday and Tuesday afternoons.  This is ideal for social players and for anyone returning to Bridge.

We continue to offer Supervised Play at 4pm on Monday, 9:30am on Wednesday, and 7pm on Thursday.  Suitable for all levels, this is an opportunity to practise in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.  No need to book – all welcome.

Please take a look at our full programme for further details or get in touch with any questions.  We’d be delighted if you joined us!
