This is a great opportunity for any new students of the game to take part in an informal competition at an early stage of their learning.

12 hands have been prepared with a commentary for use by teachers with new students of any age group. The hands are organised in 3 groups of 4, with each of North, South, West and East declaring one hand in each group.

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.
