Bridge - Beginners
At Green Centre - Doris Hunt, postcode WR2 5QS on Thurs at 1000hr.
Leader and Contact: Ian Leake
This is a 30 lesson English Bridge Union (EBU) Course to introduce you to the “King of Card Games.” As it is a 30 lesson course it takes two years to complete as the U3A only has a maximum of 16 lessons in the U3A year. It starts in September of each even numbered year, making 2018-19 the first year of the cycle.
The course assumes zero knowledge of bridge. It is useful, but not essential, to have played some card games. It starts with what is called Mini Bridge, which precludes that most off putting thing called “Calling” to establish the “Contract.” It then goes on to lead you gently through the intricacies of the game at the basic level.
When you complete the course you have the opportunity to join the “Improvers Bridge” course for the next two years and then can compete with “Guided Play”
Come and enjoy.
Please note that in 2019-20 this group is in the second year of its cycle.
