Another successful year at Bridge Club

It’s a myth to think that only seniors and retired folk play Bridge. The game is for people of all ages, and this is apparent if you look at the members who have had lessons at the Bermuda Bridge Club in the past year. Also, the game is now being introduced in some of the local schools.

Last year was a good year at the club, and the membership continues to grow. Group lessons are offered to newcomers and with a bonus: the coaches continue to support the “newbies” while they transition into the regular games.

Tuesday night games are for newcomers and junior level players, and more newcomers consistently show up for the weekly game. They are excited to play and keen to learn more about the game and all the conventions to learn; but for the “newbies”, they tend to keep it simple, and it works.

Throughout the year, the club offers a variety of annual competitions and scholarships and the 2014 scholarship winners are listed below.
