Bridge lessons

Play of the Hand in the 21st Century

You don't need 25 conventions to be a good bridge player. The secret, whether you play social bridge or duplicate, is to play your cards better. This class will help you become a confident declarer.

Come with a friend — or come alone and make new ones! See how quickly you can polish your bridge game.

The bridge program at Newtown Bridge Club emphasizes fun and learning from playing. The Thursday morning lessons use experience from playing hands to emphasize teaching points. ACBL Accredited Teacher, Susan Fronapfel, presents the lessons. Refreshments are provided.

Tuition is $12 per lesson ($9 for Newtown Bridge Club members). The textbook, Play of the Hand in the 21st Century by Audrey Grant, is available from the instructor for $14.
