Bridge Basics I

Wednesday afternoons, 2:00-4:30, June 26 - Aug 7.

The class is based on the Bridge Basics 1 Introduction book by Audrey Grant.
In the first lesson, we will learn about trick taking game and provide you with all the essential information about the fundamental mechanics of the game. It is intended for people who have never encountered bridge.
The following lessons have information that will also be of value to people who may know the basic mechanics but have not learned the principles of modern bidding.
We will cover notrump opening bids and responses, major suit opening bids and responses, and minor suit opening bids and responses.
This class provides everything you need to establish a solid foundation. Additional material will be provided in class. The approach is hands-on.
Everyone is welcome!
