This 8-lesson course is for absolute beginners, or for those who have been away from the game for a long time and want to re-start at the very beginning. This course, developed by internationally-known bridge teacher Audrey Grant, starts with an introduction to taking tricks, covers the mechanics of the game, and then moves on to opening bids, responses, and competitive auctions. This course also covers basic concepts of declarer play and defense. There are 2 manuals for the course: Bridge Basics 1 and Bridge Basics 2, which need to be purchased from the instructor at the first class for $20 ($10 each). There will also be supplementary materials developed by the instructor which will be distributed during the course. Bridge Basics 3, an additional four lessons, completes the series and will follow.
Online registration only. Contact Alan Tesler with questions.
