In a drive to increase our membership, we intend to start a course in the basic skills of bridge, which will commence in the spring, and last for 20 weeks. Once the basic skills are mastered, it is just a matter of time and application before you become a competent player. We all learn more and improve as players, with experience.
As a small club, we have players of mixed abilities, so it is a good place to learn the game; no one is made to feel out of place.
Here are some reasons why you might want to take up bridge:-
Bridge is the most compulsive mind game ever devised.
You will make friendships and social contacts that you could only have dreamt of.
Although the game is complex, it can be enjoyed at every level.
Research is showing that playing bridge regularly has both mental and physical health benefits. It may give you a new lease of life.
Remember that nothing worthwhile comes without effort. Here are some comments from our members:
“After retirement, and needing a hobby I learned to play bridge, and soon became addicted, playing two to four times a week. I even go on bridge holidays.” A.J.
The dates for the course will be announced next month. It will be suitable for all; both absolute beginners, and those who wish to revive their game. Consett Bridge Club meet at Blackhill Community Centre, Derwent St, Blackhill. Mondays 6-9pm / Thursdays 12.45-3.45pm
