Dear potential bridge student,

We teach bridge like it should be taught.
We never forget, first and foremost......It's a game!

We begin by playing "War."  It's the game you probably played as a child. Step by step we build on "War" until midway through the first session you find yourself playing bridge. By the end of that first session you will have a basic understanding of how tricks are won and lost and you'll be starting to bid and play without having memorized a thing!

After the six lessons I can't promise that you will be a great player (sorry), but you will have an insight into what it takes to become one. And hopefully we will have passed on to you our love of this remarkable, exciting game.

Small, small classes.

Four, five, or, at most, six students to a teacher. No one comes close to that student to teacher ratio. In fact, because it requires four players to play, that's about as close to private lessons as you can get.

Also included are two supervised practice sessions. These group sessions are where you'll be meeting other players like yourself who are just starting out. You'll get to play for two plus hours, practice what you've learned, and get additional instruction. Each hand you play is carefully prepared to highlight principals taught in those first six lessons.

This combination of semi-private and group lessons works. 

We have an outstanding track record. A high percentage of our students go on to become players. Each week hundreds of our students play in one or more of our practice sessions and/or novice games.
In the past thirty some-odd years our club has probably created more bridge players than any other club in the country.
The classes are fun and the instruction is first rate. 

This I guarantee....
No one else in the city will do as good a job of getting you started as we do. No one.
