Play & Learn (any standard welcome!)

Fridays 10:00 - 12:00 (Play & Learn)

Often when playing bridge you would love to ask the opinion of an expert to make your next bid, or play your next card. This is what a ‘play and learn’ session is! This class looks to sharpen your overall game without concentrating on any one specific subject. It is suitable for any standard and is great for those looking to practice already learnt techniques!

£8 per session.
