Bridge Lessons

A variety of classes are offered at the Belton Bridge Center. They are taught by a team of Club volunteers and are free of charge. The classes all offer a "hands on" approach using actual boards from the previous day's game. Anyone is welcome to come to any class any time. Drop in and check us out.

Beginner/Novice classes are offered

Tuesday mornings from 10:00 to 11:45

Intermediate/novice classes are offered

Wednesday mornings from 10:00 to 11:45

The best way to learn how to play bridge is to play bridge! We learn to play bridge by actually playing bridge. We don't teach a rote series. Every hand of bridge is different. Each hand provides a different set of circumstances and we learn better by reacting to the choices we have to make. Our instruction covers the bidding, the play of the hand and possible defenses available. Our students include actual beginners, advancing beginners, duplicate players and folks who want to learn how to play this wonderful game! We all have fun! The nearly two hours on Tuesday mornings go by quickly! You'll soon be playing in the Tuesday and Saturday games, then advance to the regular daily open games. Come join us.
