Singles are welcome and will be paired up in class.
At the conclusion of the course, we offer opportunities for follow-up classes for practice and further
skill-building. We also help match partners and foursomes to play for fun!
Registration is now open, click here.
*The book is Bridge Basics 1 - An Introduction by Audrey Grant. Many used copies available on Amazon too!
PS -- We expect that some students might have to miss a class, and we provide homework and web-based
resources to help you catch up. However, signing up for this course means a commitment to attend all the lessons
as best you can, as the learning is progressive and you will fall too far behind if you miss multiple lessons.
