Get better at bridge
Aimed at those wishing to improve their game or who feel they need a refresher or some ideas on bidding and play, these improvers' sessions are run from time to time on various specific topics. The sessions run for an hour, starting at 7:30 – and for those who wish, are followed by a few set hands to illustrate the techniques discussed. These will be advertised beforehand at the club and on the news page of the website.
Below are some pdfs prepared by experienced club players on various topics.
