Lessons for Absolute Beginners

Hello!

This page contains the information you need to join our Beginner groups in Fall 2017.

Beginner Bridge at Essex Bridge Center will be held on Mondays starting this September.

Fall 2017:  Level I Beginner Bridge – 16 Weeks
Learn a fun, challenging game and make new friends!
We believe that you learn to play bridge by actually playing bridge!

Morning Session:
Monday Mornings   9:10am – 11:40am
First morning – September 18th

Evening Session:
Monday Evenings    6:30pm – 9:00pm
First evening – September 18th
Meagan Powell will be the instructor for both of these sessions.

Monday morning and Monday evening are identical sessions.
Participants may attend either morning or evening session, or both!
You can choose which session to attend week-to-week.

Each week we will have a lesson and then a real Duplicate Bridge game, applying the information from the lesson to the session’s hands.

You never need to bring your own Partner for Level I Bridge – partners will be provided.

 

Participants are required to stay the entire 2.5-hour duration of each lesson.
Other players cannot finish their round of play when you leave early.

 

Lessons 1 – 6 are FREE!
We teach Bridge from the absolute beginning.
During these first 6 weeks, players will be given a FREE book that follows each week in class.
You’ll have narrative explanations and exercises for each lesson.

After the first 6 lessons, we continue on with Lessons 7-16 to complete Level I.
The fee for each of the remaining lessons is $13 per lesson.
No commitment necessary – you come when you can, and you pay as you go!

 

At Essex Bridge Center you’ll find:

  •  Experienced teachers who know how to relate to Beginners
  •  Proven teaching methods:  over 1,500 successful beginner students
  •  Bridge from its very beginning – square one – learning by hands-on playing each week
  •  Relaxed fun with other beginners; refreshments included

 

WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO DO NOW?
Nothing, really.
There is no commitment.
You simply show up the for first lesson and get started.
Really, just show up for the first lesson.

We do ask that you arrive early for the first lesson – approximately 25 minutes or so early.
We need to get you registered, give you a book, get you seated and show you the refreshment area before we begin.
We’ll explain everything you need to know once you arrive.

 

WHAT IF YOU CAN’T MAKE IT THE FIRST WEEK?
Don’t worry!  Come the 2nd week.  You’ll catch up.
