Bridge classes for beginning and intermediate players, as well as private lessons, are available and we have started a mentoring program to enable newer players to learn more about the wonderful and challenging game of duplicate bridge. The mentoring program allows players to play with more experienced and knowledgeable players to promote learning and enjoyment of the game.
