Beginners' Lessons

The next series of Beginners' lessons will commence Monday 5 August 2019 from 7pm to 10pm.

Alison Dawson, an experienced teacher and bridge player, will be the presenter or the lessons.

Lessons will consist of an introductory talk and PowerPoint presentation, followed by some play, and then discussion on the play. No need to bring your partner.

The lessons run for 10 weeks. From then, graduates can play in our Wednesday morning supervised / novice session or our Wednesday night session.

Cost is $40 for the course, which includes detailed course notes. Special price of $24 for full time students and youth (under 25). Interested? Phone Allison on 0412 690 781, or email the Club at

We plan to hold a night series of beginners' lessons later in the year.
