Bridge is one of the world’s greatest games played by millions of people. It combines logic and numeracy skills with great sociability and enjoyment. No knowledge of card games is necessary to join this course and it really is for complete beginners although if you learnt in the distant past you are welcome to join too.

I have been teaching bridge for 20 years and will guide you through the game of bridge at a gentle pace, as well as making the course fun and interactive. Once you have started playing bridge there will be no looking back!


Class for Intermediates and Improvers

Every Monday morning at 9.30am BST I will give a livestreamed online bridge lesson which will last for about an hour. During the lesson i will present Google slides to illustrate the lesson topics and then guide you through several instructive, animated set hands on BBO (Bridge Base Online).

The lessons are multi-level, so aimed at Intermediates and Improvers and not suitable for complete beginners. You can ask questions via the chat box and there is no need to have Zoom installed or anything technical. Bajir at hosts these lessons and he looks after any technical queries as well as being a very good host!
