WELCOME to the Joondalup Bridge Club

The Joondalup Bridge Club was founded 10yrs ago and is one of Australia's fastest growing bridge clubs, with currently over 340 members.

We offer 5 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 play in the Fleur Freame Pavilion at MacDonald Park, just off Marmion Avenue in Padbury. We have modern facilities with A/C and ergonomic chairs. There is ample free parking in front of the building.

Beginner lessons are held at least twice each year. See the box below for the next cycle.

The Membership fee for FY2024 (1/4/24 - 31/3/2025) is $55 for full members and $15 for Associates. *New members need to also pay $5 for a name badge.

Table fees are $4 for regular sessions ($6 for visitors) and $5 for event sessions (eg RPE) Note: Event sessions are members-only and usually require registration in advance. Always check.

 

BRIDGE LESSONS / SUPERVISED SESSIONS

NEXT Series of Beginner Lessons:  Mid 2024 (TBA)

Wednesday or Thursday morning - 9:30 -12:30pm.

There are not many opportunities to learn bridge in the northern suburbs. JBC usually holds 2 series of the Beginner Lessons each year, one in the evening and another in the morning. Places are limited!  

For more information Contact: presidentjbc@westnet.com.au

A modest up front charge of $60 covers all 9 beginner lessons. This is followed by several weeks of supervised practice sessions ($4 ea) to gain more confidence and speed up your play before attending our regular sessions.  All sessions include a short break for coffee or tea with a variety of biscuits, plus time to meet and socialize with other attendees.

You will receive an excellent Booklet: 'Bridge Notes for Beginners', and a book with Homework Exercises as well as a copy of Materials from each Lesson (Weekly)

Each lesson includes theory (broken up in small segments) of the BASIC BIDDING SYSTEM (ACOL with 5 card majors, weak no-trumps, weak 2's). We use worksheet exercises, guided by an experienced helper at each table, to practice bidding. The second half of the lesson is play of up to 8 boards to consolidate what is taught in that lesson.

A copy of each Lessons Powerpoint slides, worksheet exercises, answers and practice hands are sent to all attendees each week.
