Sheffield Bridge Club offers lessons and guided playing sessions for a range of abilities - from "absolute beginners" through "improvers" to "intermediates" and beyond - all in a friendly & welcoming atmosphere. 

The club also offers some friendly sessions of gently competitive bridge, aimed at players with less experience who are wanting to make the step-up from their classes. See below / the club calendar for details. 



Tuesday 19:00 - 21:00 (Lesson)

Lessons for complete beginners with Dom Rayner.

Classes will cost £8 and be payable on a week-by-week basis. The initial course will spend the first few weeks focusing on mini-bridge and card play, and then follow on with different aspects of bidding. After 12 weeks you can expect to have a solid grasp of the fundamentals after which lessons will continue on for all who wish to continue to learn.

Dominic is an England under-25's squad member, an experienced bridge teacher and a member of the English Bridge Teachers Association. For more information including testimonials from past students, see Dom can be contacted by email to, or by phone on 07784997379.


Thursday 19:30 - 21:30 (Lesson)

These beginners courses assume no knowledge and will gently guide you through the basics of card play and bidding. Students then progress on from structured lessons into supervised play sessions. Cost for the initial six-week primer is £48, which follows the first week's free taster session.
