Beginners Bridge

Co-ordinator:  Linda Jackson – 01799 540 269 – email 

Once again, we shall be running a six month ‘Bridge for Beginners’ course commencing Wednesday 9th January 2019 until Wednesday 26th June 2019 with a break for half term and Easter. The course is aimed at absolute beginners and will follow the English Bridge Union guideline of starting with Mini-Bridge until an understanding of card play is achieved before moving on to bidding for contracts using the ACOL UK bidding system.

Jane Guy and I are not formal bridge teachers but in the spirit of U3A we will show you the basics of playing and bidding to prepare you for moving on to an improver class which is run by an English Bridge Union accredited teacher. Places are limited to 16 people on a first come, first served basis. We will keep a waiting list for the following year if necessary. The venue is Fairycroft House, Audley Road, Saffron Walden starting at 2.00pm until 4.30pm. Cost will be in the region of £45 per person for the 6 months but final numbers will determine actual cost.

Car parking is available at Fairycroft House and also a tea/coffee bar. To reserve a place contact me at or phone 01799 540 269 or 07709 239 528.
