Basic Bridge Course starts tomorrow - 19 March

If you're looking to get back into bridge, we have the perfect course for you. (See below.) Following on from beginners' lessons, it requires just a rudimentary knowledge of the game. Anita Curtis has proved to be a popular and motivating teacher. Details of the program are attached. Hurry!


After many years in the same time slot, we are changing the time of our Tuesday night session. Commencing 24 March, our regular duplicate session on Tuesday nights will run from 7pm to 10pm due to popular demand. Also on Tuesdays, from 7pm to 9pm, there will be a separate supervised section. This session is open to all.

If you or someone you know is interested in basics, Anita Curtis will be running a course for those with limited knowledge of bridge. It's not for people who have never had lessons before, but aimed at those who wish to continue from beginners' lessons. It starts on Thursday, 19 March, 10:15am to 12:15pm. If you're interested, please contact us ASAP; it will not go ahead if there aren't enough players. This is a great opportunity for newer players.

Change of sessions

It is with regret that we confirm the cancellation of the Tuesday Supervised Session, 5–7pm. We thank Peter, Trish and Rosemary for their dedication over the years. The last session will be on 17 March.

On Tuesday, 24 March, a new session will begin. Anyone is welcome to attend. It will be a two-hour session, starting at 7pm and will run for six months, with a view to developing skills and speed to a level where players can join in our regular duplicate sessions. Volunteers from the committee will be on hand to help out. There will be short talks about scoring, how to use the Bridgemates, etiquette, etc.

Lessons for EVERYONE in March

Acclaimed teacher, Anita Curtis, will give three 2-hour refresher lessons on Tuesday afternoons on doubles, transfers and forcing bids. These are not advanced lessons but consolidation lessons. Read the attached flyer and see what you don’t know! Sign up at the club or e-mail us.


Lessons begin this week with the ever-popular Anita Curtis. This is an excellent opportunity to 'get your feet wet' with such an accomplished teacher. The cost is $100 for 6 lessons, after which you can continue weekly with Anita to hone and practise your skills. Then, when you're ready, we have the perfect gentle duplicate session for you to join on Thursdays. And bring a friend - it's fun to learn together. The lessons will be held at the Henley Community Centre on Crown Street in Henley from 10 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Read on...
