This group is run as a course and is suitable for members who are complete novices to the game of Bridge or who may have played some time ago and forgotten almost everything of what they once knew.
Bridge is a "whist-like" card game for 4 players operating as two teams/pairs, who sit opposite each other. The game consists of two main parts. Firstly, the bidding - where players compete to decide on a contact where one pair aim to take a specified number of tricks, with a specified suit as trumps (or with no trumps). Secondly, the play - where the pair that won the contract then try to make at least the specified number of tricks.
Starting from the absolute basics the course will cover the main features of Acol (the most commonly used bidding system), and some techniques of card play. Familiarity with “whist-like” card games would be an advantage, but is not essential.
