This course is open to those who are just starting their bridge career and are complete beginners or for those that would like to revisit all bridge topics from the start.
The Year 1 Term 1 Bridge for All course is a 10 week course (Lessons 1 - 10) and is based on the English Bridge Union’s ‘Bridge for All’ programme, using the Standard English ACOL bidding system. The cost is £110 per term.
It is recommended that students purchase a copy of the 'Bridge for All Book One' Study Book as it has a summary of the whole 30 week Year 1 course as well as many of the hands used in the course and extra useful exercises and examples. Here is a link to the book :
