I will be running a pilot Online Bridge Lesson on Wednesday 1st April at 10.30am. If people enjoy the lesson (and the technology does its bit) I will start weekly lessons on Wednesdays and a Friday Morning Club Class variant at 10am on Friday mornings, beginning 8th and 10th April respectively. The pilot lesson will be broadcast through Zoom. This software is the most popular video conferencing software around and is widely trusted. You do not need to download the software although, in time, it may be desirable to do so, since it will allow for more students. You will have to load the app however, which just takes a few seconds. The first lesson will be free to all, after which I will run a
Here is Hand number 2 of my occasional series of bridge hands to keep your bridge brains going. I'm hoping to have something far more dynamic, even interactive, up and running soon but, meantime, take heed the good advice...
I'm hard at work preparing some online lessons for my much-missed students. These will either take the form of a recorded film or, if we can arrange it, a live broadcast with interaction.

This time, of course, all my students from each Roehampton Club class, private students and new recruits can join in. I'll try to make it as cheap as possible (hopefull
Over the course of the coming weeks and months, I will try to post some hands, quizzes and lessons every few days, so do look in occasionally, and feel free to comment using the contact dialogue boxes. Hand Number 1
Following government advice yesterday, I have decided to suspend all lessons until further notice. I suspect that regular lessons will not resume before the autumn, but please check in occasionally for updates. Summer Specials are still a possibility. As detailed in the previous blog, I will be posting entertaining (hopefully) bridge reports every few days. I am also looking into attempting some online lessons too.
The Winter Term will end on Friday 3rd April; the Spring Term will commence on Wednesday 29th April, and continue until Friday 12th June. Friday Morning Club Classes will continue throughout April with the exception of Friday 10th April (Good Friday) when there will be no class. Friday Club Classes will then continue throughout the summer months.
