Casual Bridge Play at Seattle Bridge Center – November/December 2023

On Monday evenings from November 20 through December 18, Seattle Bridge Center is hosting Casual Bridge Play from 7pm to 9pm. Light snacks provided. Come on whichever Mondays work for you.

If you’ve just finished a lesson series, or you are returning to the game and feeling rusty, you can practice your bridge skills with supervised play. You can ask questions about how to bid or play a hand, and you can use printed reference materials.

Or if you are brand new to the game of bridge, we’ll introduce you to the basic ideas of the game and we may even be able to get some cards into your hands.

Or if you are a more experienced player, come on by! With enough experienced players, we’ll set up a table for you where you can play at your own pace.

Most play will be shuffle-and-deal with random hands. Occasionally, we will introduce some elements of competitive play by comparing results between tables. No masterpoints will be awarded.

Cost: $5 cash per person, with discounts for players age 18 and under.

It’s nice to know how many folks are coming, so please drop us a note at SeattleBridgeCenter@gmail.com and mention that you’re interested in attending “Casual Bridge Play on Monday nights”.

See you at the bridge tables!
