Hamilton Bridge Club Lessons

The Hamilton Bridge Club runs lessons for those who wish to learn to play Bridge and those returning to Bridge after a break

Lessons start mid March and continue for around 12 weeks with each lesson being about 2 hours. At the start of the lessons you will play Mini-bridge, a simplified version of the game to give you an idea how bridge is played before the lessons proper commence. The first two lessons are free to give you an idea of whether you are suited to the game before making the commitment. These lessons teach the game using the ACOL bidding system and are based on NZ Bridge's teaching of bridge for beginners program.

At the end of the lessons you are welcome to join the Club at a discounted membership fee. Those who choose to join the Club usually start playing together with other learners either on a Tuesday evening or Friday morning in what is a very friendly and social atmosphere where an allowance is made for their 'beginner' status. The lessons are not free and come at a cost of $50 for which each participant receives a copy of the lessons and associated training notes along with supper at the conclusion of each lesson

Lessons for 2021 are well advanced and we are very unlikely to run another course later this year. Courses for 2022 are being looked into now with a change of the "Day Course" to Tuesday afternoons ( 1pm - 3pm ) being the most likely.
So if you are interested in learning to play bridge next year you may have your details recorded by contacting the Club using the information at the front of this website. We will then contact you when we confirm dates or just keep an eye on the this page later in the year when we decide dates
