For those who prefer the intensive course, rather than the once-a-week approach, we teach the Beginner, Next Step, Intermediate, Improver, Improver Play and Advanced Courses in a weekend. Includes lunch both days, 10.00 - 16.30. Dates of all weekend courses now fixed until the summer of 2014.
Next Step is an essential practical course, consolidating and extending the basic principles covered in Beginner. It is also suitable for those who have played some Bridge outside. Free Club membership for four months is included.
Essential is our most popular course, Intermediate covers all basic aspects of the game. Many repeat it – and all say it was most worthwhile! Once you’ve finished Intermediate, give Supervised Gentle Duplicate a try – help with every bid and play whilst moving around meeting new people.
Essential extra is the ideal follow-on from Intermediate. The play themes will link in with Intermediate, giving you the confidence to move forward. I’m sure this consolidation course will
make a big difference to your game.
Improver features all the basic conventions to equip you for a decent game. I have noticed a huge rise in the level of those who have taken the course. There are six carefully constructed set deals per week.
Improver Plus is a universally well-received course and practises the bidding themes of Improver, whilst introducing exciting and essential play themes to improve your game. Once you have completed the Improver Play course, you are well equipped to face the big wide world of ARBC Gentle Duplicate and beyond. Repeat viewing highly recommended, especially for course-junkies.
Advanced is suitable for duplicate players, or experienced social players, I have thought very carefully about the themes. They will surely illuminate and fascinate.
Advanced Play has been recently rewritten, with new themes, new deals and new handouts. I am sure you will find it really quite eye-opening and lots and fun.
Advanced Defence: A good defender is a popular partner – and a winner. See 48% turn into 58% in a gem of a course.
Duplicate Pairs Tactics: This is Andrew’s pet topic. He has written a course with eight new deals for each class –
sure to illuminate and hone your matchpoint skills. Book early to avoid disappointment, as places will fill up quickly
