This will be dependent upon topics chosen but in all instances you should feel more confident with your declarer and defensive play.
What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?
You should have completed a minimum of 60 hours bridge tuition or be familiar with all opening one level bids and overcalls. Knowledge of two level opening bids is not essential but desirable. We play Weak Twos; strong twos (8 playing tricks or 20+) are covered by opening 2C and rebidding accordingly. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the tutor via the Humanities department.
How will I be taught, and will there be any work outside the class?
Tuition will take the form of discussion, quizzes and playing of prepared hands.
Are there any other costs? Is there anything I need to bring?
There are no additional costs for this course other than your note-taking materials.
When I've finished, what course can I do next?
There is an additional Bridge revision day (UBD24) on Thursday 17th August.
In 2017/18 Bridge: more competitive bidding (UBD17) starts on 27.09.17 and is suitable for those who have already studied a minimum of 60 hours bridge tuition, or have an equivalent level. (For beginner level bridge try UBD20 and UBD25 Learn to play bridge.).
