Learn Bridge
Elizabeth Gompels

Social and enchanting, a hand of bridge takes only a deck of 52
cards, four people, and about 10 minutes to play. Easy to learn,
the game can take a lifetime to master, and is fun to play at all
levels of expertise. Learn how to play bridge, including the basics
of bidding, playing, scoring, and bridge conventions. Classes
include hands-on learning, guided demonstrations, group
discussions, and lots of bridge hands to practice techniques.

Play Bridge
Elizabeth Gompels

Come join us to practice and play bridge while increasing your
confidence and deepening your understanding of the game.
Get your questions answered and receive help in real time. The atmosphere will be fun, friendly, and relaxed.


Bidding Refresher: This mini-course moves beyond the basics of
the game. Topics include opening and responding, overcalls and
takeout doubles, Stayman and Jacoby Transfers, and Strong 2C
and Blackwood. Each session begins with a brief lesson, then you
will bid and play a series of prepared deals with your classmates
to practice the techniques presented. This is a wonderful
opportunity for bridge players who are returning to the game
and would like a refresher or for newer who want to improve and
hone their bidding skills.


Defense: The focus of this mini-course is on techniques to
improve your results when defending. Topics include carding/
signals, opening leads, discards, and partnership cooperation.
This series is highly interactive with guided demonstrations and
discussions. You will bid and play a series of prepared deals
with your classmates to practice the techniques presented. This
is a great opportunity for Learn Bridge graduates and advanced
beginners to develop their defensive skills and fierce defender

Dear Bridge Players, 



I've included my tentative Fall schedule in the attachment. "Dazzling Defense" will be back in the Winter of 2023. 


I hope to see you this summer. Either way, I wish you a healthy and relaxing season, and that you play some bridge and earn a few master points along the way….
