Bridge Lessons: Ten Steps to Basic Bridge starts Monday, October 16

To play with a full deck — play Bridge!

“Ten Steps to Basic Bridge” starts Monday, October 16, 2023 and runs on Monday & Thursday evenings through November 16. In this lesson series, you’ll learn Bridge from the ground up using Standard American bidding with a couple of modern twists. This fast-paced series appeals to those with at least a little cardplaying experience, as well as players who want to get back into the game using modern methods.

When you complete this series, you will be ready to play Bridge in social games and in introductory Duplicate games. Seattle Bridge Center offers a Rookie Duplicate game on Tuesday evenings.

No partner needed — you’ll meet several new players along the way.

Lesson fees are collected on a pay-as-you-go basis. You can stop or return at any time. The cost is $10 per person per lesson, with discounts for players age 25 and under.
