Beginners


   HONORS welcomes beginner players of all ages. Our Beginner and Advanced Beginner classes will help you learn the basics of play and current conventions. The current classes with starting dates are listed below and may also be found under the “Lessons” tab on the Navigation Bar.

   Once you have begun a Beginners lessons series, you will find it helpful to practice your new skills by taking part in Supervised Play. A teacher is available to answer questions as you bid and play the hand. You don’t need a partner to participate. While you can play in these supervised games as long as you like, most prefer to move on to playing duplicate games. The Supervised Schedule is listed below.

   This transition to Duplicate may be intimidating at first, so Honors has 3 ways to help you do this.

   We have a three class series “Intro to Duplicate” which is taught on a regular basis which will give you the basics of the rules & etiquette.

   We have a Novice Duplicate game, in which people with only 0-5 points are allowed to play. It is on Wednesday at 12:45pm on the 12th floor.

    We have established a “Mentor” program to help you become accustomed to the etiquette and rules of duplicate play. When you are ready, we will pair you with an accomplished bridge player who is familiar with the dos and don’ts of duplicate bridge. It is a timed game, and there are clearly established rules of play. Your mentor will guide you through your first experience and answer your questions.

   We believe you will have so much fun, you will find it addictive and something you will want to do on a regular basis!

   You do not need to make a reservation to attend a class. If you are interested in learning more about learning bridge at HONORS or the Mentor program for beginners, please call (212) 230 1230 or stop by the reception desk on the 14th floor.
All classes are on the 12th floor
