WELCOME to the Joondalup Bridge Club

Do you want to play bridge in a friendly club?

Do you want to learn how to play bridge?

We are a progressive club with over 300 members.

We have 4 STANDARD CLUB ('competition style') sessions and 2 ABRIDGED ('shorter social style') sessions each week that cater for a wide range of bridge abilities. See the SESSION TIMES box on this website.

We are located just off Marmion Avenue in Padbury.

Most of the information you need to know is on this website so Browse (best on a large device or tablet) and contact us if you need to know more. 

 

BEGINNER / INTERMEDIATE / DVD / SPECIFIC TOPIC LESSONS

The NEXT Series of BEGINNER LESSONS starts on Wednesday, 3rd August.

This series will be on Wednesday mornings  (9:30am - 12pm)

A further evening series will commence in early October

Members can benefit by repeating / additional practice / supervising. 

A modest charge of $50 covers all 9 beginner lessons plus one extra session of just practice play after week 5. This is followed by 3 or 4 weeks of supervised practice sessions to gain confidence and speed up your play b4 attending  our regular sessions.  Each session includes a short break for tea, biscuits plus time to meet and socialize with other attendees.

You will also receive an excellent Booklet: 'Bridge Notes for Beginners'.

Each beginners lesson includes some theory (broken up in small segments) of a basic bidding system (5 card majors, weak no trumps, weak 2's). We then use worksheet exercises, guided by an experienced helper at each table, to practice bidding and up to 8 boards to play and consolidate what is taught in that lesson.

We use modern teaching methods with Powerpoint slides. A copy of the slides, worksheets, answers and practice hands is sent to all attendees weelky to enable you to revise.

There are not many opportunities to learn bridge in the northern suburbs. We only hold 2/3  series of the Beginner courses each year. Places are limited, So you need to Register early.

Register via the PRE-REGISTRATION box on this website.
