Bridge is by far the greatest card game of all, and it can provide immense challenge and enjoyment for the rest of your life. Bridge is a great way to develop and retain memory, tactical, probability and communication skills, and is a great social activity.
Bridge is a trick-taking game, using a standard 52-card deck of cards. It is somewhat similar to 25, 30 or 35, but involves an additional auction or bidding phase and requires a greater level of skill than most other card games. It is played by four players in two competing teams, and is practiced by millions worldwide in clubs, tournaments, online and at home with friends.
The improved beginners course is for those that know the basics of bridge but who are still relatively new to the game. You will move on from just playing the game, and learn how to start winning.
This class is for people who have completed at least two sets of lessons. You will play a set number of boards each night and move to meet new opponents each round. There will be a teacher available should you need a hand with bidding and play. This is a good introduction to club bridge at a more relaxed level.
