Our Easybridge Program

The beginning bridge program at Newtown Bridge Club emphasizes fun and learning from playing. The format for Wednesday evenings is a 20-25 minute lesson followed by play of 6 to 12 bridge hands. Accredited instructor, Susan Fronapfel, hosts the lessons. Players are encouraged to experiment and learn from their results. Refreshments are provided.

An optional textbook, Easybridge! by Edith McMullin, is available from the instructor for $15.
