New Teaching Room at Leeds Bridge Club

The Leeds Bridge Club had its new Teaching Room officially opened on 8th September 2019 by Councillor Sharon Hamilton (pictured left with Chairperson, Sue Friedman).

The room (pictured right) will give the club their own much needed space for its many classes. The new beginners’ classes commence during the week beginning Monday 23rd September 2019. Thanks to help with a grant from the Yorkshire Contract Bridge Association, the room has computer facilities and the tutors will be able to use this to enhance their already successful teaching methods.
