New Annapolitans Interest Groups
Bridge - Beginners and Beyond
The Beginners and Beyond Bridge Group meets on Mondays, 1:00-3:30 p.m. in the Park Place party room. Members of the group had played in the past, but needed instruction to catch up and start playing again. They have taken lessons at the Severna Park Bridge Club. They are low-key, talking about bidding, replaying the hands and helping one another learn. There is no pressure, but you must have a working knowledge of bridge basics in the current style of Audrey Grant or similar author/teacher, as this group is not for someone who has never played before. The group plays party bridge where after four hands partners change. Tables are filled on a first come basis and the group plays with full tables only.
