Improving Your Bidding Decisions

Bidding lessons for intermediate players

Tuesday mornings, 10:00-11:30
6 drop-in classes
Nov 7 - Dec 19, 2023
/ no class Dec 12

There is more to bidding than just counting high card points. The Improving your Bidding Decisions lessons are designed to take players beyond the rote application of rules and to develop the skills needed to take their game to the next level. Not only will it help with what to do with borderline hands, but also will review declarer and defensive techniques. Come with a friend — or come alone and make new ones!

Tuition is $13 per lesson ($10 for Newtown Bridge Club members). Each lesson stands on its own so players can drop in whenever their schedules permit. ACBL Accredited Teacher, Susan Fronapfel, presents the lessons.

This class is for pre-intermediate players. Bridge 1 and Bridge 2, other beginning bridge classes or experience playing bridge are prerequisites.

For registration and questions, contact Susan at or 203-733-8525.
