Lessons at YorktownWe offer lessons for those who want to learn bridge or improve their game. Here are the levels of classes we teach:
|Beginner||For new players who have never played bridge before, and want to learn the game. We start at the very beginning, and we assume no previous knowledge of bridge.|
|Novice||Also called "Advanced Beginner." For those who have completed a Beginner course and want to solidify their understanding. We review basic bidding and play techniques, but go into more depth.|
|Intermediate||For players who have a solid understanding of the fundamentals and want to bring their game to the next level. Bidding is more in-depth, and may include some of the more popular and easier conventions.|
|Advanced||For active duplicate bridge players who want to learn new techniques and improve their skills. Bidding focuses on popular conventions; play and defense focus on more advanced techniques and thinking at the table.|
|Supervised Play||This is an opportunity to play bridge and practice what you have learned in class or elsewhere. The teachers will answer any questions you have about bidding or play.|
Typically, each class includes a combination of lecture, bidding practice, playing deals, and practice worksheets. The exact makeup of a class depends on the instructor and the topic being covered.
You do NOT need to come with a partner.
All classes are held at the Yorktown Bridge Club.
