Dear potential bridge student,

We teach bridge like it should be taught.

We never forget, first and foremost......It's a game!

We begin by playing "War."  It's the game you probably played as a child. Step by step we build on "War" until midway through the first session you find yourself playing bridge. By the end of that first session you will have a basic understanding of how tricks are won and lost and you'll be starting to bid and play without having memorized a thing!

After the six lessons I can't promise that you will be a great player (sorry), but you will have an insight into what it takes to become one. Hopefully we will have passed on to you our love of this remarkably exciting game.

Small, small classes.

Our classes are often as small as two or three tables. Never more than four. A wonderfully small student to teacher ratio.

The lessons are hands on, the emphasis is on having a good time. After all, we are teaching you a GAME.  This very adult way of learning has you playing and practicing right from the start. No stuffy, old fashioned lecturing, no memorizing and no blackboard work for you. No note taking either. Everything we teach comes right from the book because we wrote the book. And if you'd like to practice in between lessons, we encourage you to try our very user friendly (really) six week  interactive website, that comes free with the course.

Our lessons work. 

We have an outstanding track record. A high percentage of our students go on to become players. Each week hundreds of our students enjoy playing in one or more of our eight "kitchen table" sessions for novice and developing players.

In the past thirty-odd years our club has probably created more bridge players than any other club in the country. The classes are fun and the instruction is first rate. 

This I guarantee:
No one else will do as good a job of getting you started as we will. No one.

Welcome to the world of bridge,
Jeff Bayone
