Bridge for All Course Year 2 Term 1

This course is open to those who have completed the Bridge for All Year 1 Term 3 course or those with equivalent bridge knowledge. The Year 2 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 Two' Study Book as it has a summary of the whole 30 week Year 2 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:

Tutor: Ian Bishop

Each week's class includes some gentle teaching and a lot of practice. The topics to be covered in Term 2 are:*

Y2L1 Planning the Play using SWOT Analysis
Y2L2 Hand Evaluation using the Losing Trick Count
Y2L3 Red Suit Transfers
Y2L4 Strong Responses to Partner's Opening Bid
Y2L5 Bidding the 4th Suit
Y2L6 Defence - 3rd hand play/signal/attitude
Y2L7 Further Defence Skills
Y2L8 Leads through strength/partner's suit
Y2L9 Takeout Doubles
Y2L10 A second Double

*These may vary slightly depending on the progress of the class
