Our Lessons

Our Lessons

All our lessons are conducted 100% online, so it is the perfect new hobby for social distancing! We use a combination of online platforms including Shark Bridge and Zoom.

Every session has a zoom meeting or other method of voice/video communication. This makes online bridge a great way of socialising safely.

If you are not very comfortable with technology then don’t worry. I will provide step by step instructions for set-up, and I am happy to arrange tutorials for using the online elements if needed. 

For more information or to book a lesson please contact Rachel Oliver on pontybridgecontact@gmail.com or 07827928810

If you would like to join in but find these times unsuitable please do get in touch. I am happy to negotiate private lessons, and hopefully more group sessions will be added over time.

Every Wednesday 1.30-3.30PM – £10  for 2hrs.

If you have got to grips with the beginners lessons, or you have been playing for a while and want to improve your game then try our improvers lessons. These will focus on more advanced bidding conventions and play techniques.

Every lesson consists of a short presentation followed by the supervised play of some themed boards. I will always be on hand if you need advice.

Online Seminars

New times to be arranged – £15 for 2 hours

These are the most play intensive of the online sessions. 

Each session will focus in detail on one subject. The online platform I use allows me to make it so that you are always bidding or playing the most interesting hand. This means that we my sometimes have 2,3 or 4 people bidding at a table together, and then splitting off so that each person can declare the hand. We then all come back together to discuss at the end.
