NEW! Guide by the Side Bridge
Have you ever been sitting at the bridge table looking at your hand thinking, “What in the world do I do with this hand?” That is a situation that happens to all bridge players. The intent of this class is to offer bridge players a bidding and playing tip at the beginning of each class and then play random hands. You will have a bridge mentor walking around the classroom to offer guidance and to answer questions.
This class is designed for players who have bridge fundamentals.
