Beginners Lessons

  • Victoria Bridge Club holds lessons, for those keen to learn the game.
  • You do not need to be a club member to attend.
  • No prior knowledge of bridge is required.
  • Classes are run by experienced, friendly coaches and comprise 10 stimulating weekly lessons where participants learn the basics of bridge.
  • Each session involves both instruction and actual play.
  • A course workbook and take home notes are supplied to all participants.
  • The fee for the 10-lesson series including the course workbook is $80.00. You also get free club membership for the current year.
  • Those who complete the beginners’ lessons and wish to take up the free club membership offer, usually play on a Wednesday evening. This session is very social, introducing lesson graduates gradually to competitive play in a friendly, relaxed, low pressure atmosphere. Wednesday night players also have the opportunity to attend Coaching nights through-out the year. This coaching is done by some of the Club’s more experienced players and builds on the foundation established in the beginners’ lessons.

Further Skills Development

From time to time Victoria Bridge Club also runs classes for improver’s as they move through the grades and extension classes for advanced players.

In 2017 the club is also staging coaching sessions at an ‘improver’s level’ for club members. Tutor and dates for these coaching sessions to be advised.

An opportunity for less experienced players to play with advanced players is provided by the Wellesley Pairs event. This event is scheduled for occasional Tuesday evenings: This year they will be held on 18th April, 6th June and 24th October 2017. To play in the Wellesley Pairs no two players can exceed a combined grading total of six (6).
