Beginner Bridge Classes 2016-2017

We are currently receiving classes from Teachers and as we receive them we are updating the Website. I have marked 2016-2017 classes in green

All teachers listed are CBAI Qualified & Registered.  If you need a qualified teacher to give classes in your area please contact the CBAI on 01-4929666.  We do not recommend that you use unregistered teachers.

In general, Bridge teachers run their Beginners classes over a 20-24 week period, with 10-12 weeks from the End of September to Christmas and 10-12 weeks from January until beginning of April or so.  On completion of classes we encourage teachers and clubs to provide a mentored, assisted game to assist Novice players in their transition from class to club bridge.  You are a Novice for five years from the September of the season in which you commence your classes or until you have earned enough points to move on to the next grade.  For next season’s classes click below.  These are updated as we receive details from the teachers.  If there are no details for 2016-2017 contact the teacher for last year’s classes who will be able to help.
