Further education


Refresher programme

In response to membership requests, Dorothy Mackay has been leading a refresher programme aimed at those who have completed the lessons within the last couple of years, or anyone who would like to refresh their basic bridge understanding.  There is one lesson at the start of each Tuesday competition/series which allows partnerships to consolidate their learning before moving on to the next topic.

Sessions are held from 6.40 to 7.10 on a Tuesday evening.

It does not matter whether you play Acol or Standard American most of the topics are interchangeable. Topics covered will generally take the same approach as NZ Bridge prepared lessons. The proposed programme for the next group of sessions is:

18 August 2020           Overcalling

99 September             Doubles

6 October                    Asking bids

27 October                  Hints to help improve your bridge
