LESSONS IN 2021
Our experienced teacher, Fiske Warren, will help you to improve your bridge skills through his series of lesson modules.
Fiske has a reputation for making his lessons fun and enjoyable in a relaxed environment. Click here for Fiske's profile.
The lesson modules are specifically designed to meet your needs whether you are a Beginner, Intermediate or Advanced bridge player.
All sessions are held at the South Perth Bridge Club in Como.
LESSONS FOR BEGINNERS
Current courses started in early February. Our next two beginners courses will start in May 2021 as follows:
MONDAY mornings starting Monday 3rd May 2021, 9.45 am to 11.45 am. The last lesson will be on 28th June (there is no lesson on 7th June which is a public holiday).
WEDNESDAY evenings starting Wednesday 5th May 2021, 7.30 pm to 9.30 pm. The last lesson will be on 23rd June.
Both courses run for 8 weeks at a cost of $100
You are very welcome to come on your own or with a partner/friends. Tea, coffee and biscuits are included.
These lessons are suitable for complete beginners as well as those who want to refresh their basic knowledge. Fiske will first teach you how to play the game and then provide you with knowledge and skills to bid and play the cards. Each week, you will build on your knowledge from previous weeks and full course notes will be provided. By the end of the course, students will have learnt the basics of the Standard American Bidding System and will be ready to play either among friends or in supervised sessions at the bridge club. These sessions are specially designed for new players in a relaxed friendly atmosphere.

LESSONS FOR INEXPERIENCED PLAYERS
Each year Fiske holds a number of lessons specially designed for inexperienced players and those playing in Supervised. These are the next steps after the beginners course.
The first two lessons in 2021 will be as follows:
Tuesday 13th April 2021, 9.45 am to 11.45 am. DEFENCE: Learn how to make the best opening leads and what to play in 3rd seat to help your partner defeat the contract
Tuesday 11th May 2021, 9.45 am to 11.45 am. TRANSFER BIDS: Learn these conventional responses to improve your bidding after partner opens 1 No Trump or 2 No Trumps
Each of these lessons costs $15, payable on the day. You can come on your own or can bring a partner. There is no need to book in advance - simply come along.
SUPERVISED BRIDGE SESSIONS
Supervised sessions are held for players who have a rudimentary knowledge of bridge and feel they would benefit from playing duplicate bridge in a session where coaching on aspects of play and bidding can be sought from a friendly session director who will help you out with a smile!
Supervised sessions are fun, non-threatening and will help you build your skill and confidence.
You don't need to bring a partner to a supervised session, we will find one for you.
Mondays 9.15 am to 12.00 noon Supervisor: Lyndall Steed
Wednesdays 7.30 to 10.00 pm Supervisor: Marnie Leybourne, usually includes a pre-lesson talk at 7.15pm.
