Bridge is a popular card game that challenges the mind requiring critical thinking and strategy at every turn. Learning how to play bridge can be easy and fun. As with learning any game, there is no substitute for playing. However, there are practical ways to build your bridge understanding before sitting at a table.

Our Beginner's Program

At the Academy, we offer a complete program for anyone who wants to learn how to play bridge. We start at the very beginning. With a series of three classes, "Introduction to Bridge (I,II, and III)". After completing the first two courses students are encouraged to play and practice what they have learned. The third course will fill in missing details. As students progress that can participate in supervised play, our beginner games, and attend our other beginner classes. As players feel ready, they may join any of the many games offered at the Redwood Bridge Club.
