BEGINNER / INTERMEDIATE / DVD / SPECIFIC TOPIC LESSONS

The Next Series of BEGINNER LESSONS will commence on Wednesday 15th September so register early.

The 3rd SPECIFIC TOPIC lesson on LEADS given by Ann H (a Gold Master Player) has been postponed until Tuesday afternoon September 28th September at 1:30pm

Registration for above lessons can be made using the SIGN-UP / Pre-Registration box to the left (scroll if you use a small device)

The BEGINNER LESSONS are on Wednesday evenings  (7 - 9:30pm)

Members can benefit by repeating / additional practice / supervising. 

A modest charge of $50 covers all 10 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 to play at 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 1 hour of teaching a basic bidding system (5 card majors, weak no trumps, weak 2's) plus 1.5 hours of playing 6 - 8 boards to practice and consolidate what is taught in that lesson.

We use modern teaching methods with Powerpoint slides which are sent to all attendees.

There are not many opportunities to learn bridge in the northern suburbs. We only hold two sets of each of the Beginner, Intermediate and DVD courses each year and places are limited. So Register early.

Register via the PRE-REGISTRATION box on this website.
