Classes are held at the Bridge Club to introduce potential players to the game, and to improve the ability of existing players. The Club has adopted the Scottish Bridge Union syllabus and teachers are qualified by the SBU.
This year we will have two courses for complete beginners.
One will start on Monday evening, the 30th of September running from 7 pm to around 10 pm.
The other will be on Wednesday mornings starting on the 2nd of October running from 9.30 am to around 12 noon.
The courses will finish about the beginning of June 2020.
Second year classes or improvers’ classes may be run if there is enough demand. These would be on a Wednesday evening.
Each course consists of about 30 lessons over 3 terms. The cost for each term is £50. Anyone in full time education or age 25 or under is classified as a Junior by the SBU and for Juniors tuition is free. Those beginners who are confident they will stay the term can pay the full amount but, as we understand that Bridge is not for everyone (although we would like it to be) the charge can be £5.00 per lesson for the first term only. Those who go on to the 2nd term will hopefully have the commitment to pay the full amount at the start of the term.
Those who complete the beginners’ course are encouraged to join the club and start playing in our Nova session on a Monday evening. Once they have gained confidence they can try taking part in our other tournaments..
All those in classes may take part in the National Hugh Kelsey competition where pairs compete against all those in classes everywhere in Scotland. Hugh Kelsey was a legendary Scottish International player and author of many classic books about Bridge.
One is never too young or too old to begin playing Bridge. It is an extremely sociable game which keeps the mind active and you will find a warm welcome here at The Bridge Club.
