Bridge has captivated players for many years. It has evolved and changed but the fascination of the game and it's appeal to players of all ages is still strong. There have always been different approaches to the game and different bidding styles. Lessons these days take a modern approach which is played in most bridge clubs, bridge tournaments, games on-line and on board ships and among friends playing at home. So, you've decided to learn bridge. What a great idea - you will never look back!
The lessons at the Redcliffe Bridge Club use a 'Workbook for the Absolute Beginner' written by Joan Butts which allows students to learn the fundamentals of the game quickly. Joan Butts is a well known Australian bridge personality and she is the national teaching co-ordinator for the Australian Bridge Federation. She teaches bridge around Australia, has a bridge club in Brisbane and is now involved with bridge on-line. Click here to go to Joan's website.
