Bridge for Beginners

It’s a Catch 22: you want to learn to play bridge in a group, but bridge groups are for experienced players. Here’s a chance to learn the basic rules, etiquette, strategies and vocabulary of this challenging card game. Topics covered in this 6-week session include hand-valuation, bidding, trick-taking, and scoring. Hands-on experience will give you confidence to participate in Sunriver area bridge groups. This is a 6-week series, each class building on the last, so please try to attend every class for continuity.
