Monday Morning Bridge

On most Monday mornings at 9:30 we run supervised bridge sessions. The bridge is friendly and easy paced. There are always two or three experienced players on hand to help you out when you get stuck.

Frequently, the session starts with a lesson to help you develop your skills.

On the last Monday morning of every month, we run a more formal session. It is still friendly and easy paced but we use Bridgemates for scoring and award masterpoints. Everyone welcome.
