Our Easybridge! Program

The bridge program at Newtown Bridge Club emphasizes fun and learning from playing. The format for Tuesday afternoon workshops is a brief lesson followed by play and discussion of 4 to 6 practice hands. Accredited instructor, Susan Fronapfel, conducts the workshops. Refreshments are provided. Come with a friend – or come alone and make new ones!

Students receive a comprehensive handout for each workshop. Tuition is $12 per lesson ($9 for Newtown Bridge Club members). Each workshop stands on its own so players can join workshops whenever their schedules permit.
