New Player Guide

Hello, So you think you would like to play bridge ? 

An excellent idea

Unlike most card games bridge has an air of mystery to it.

Lets sort out the facts and fiction of the game of bridge which is,

"Probably the Best Card Game in the World"

          Fiction                                                            

                     "Bridge clubs are for old people" 

          Fact

                  The average age of a bridge club is usually 60+, But try and tell our members they are                          old and you will soon be put right. People of all ages are welcome

 

           Fiction

                      Bridge is a game for "posh people" 

           Fact

                  Bridge is often portrayed by television, as a game played by the "upper classes" in their                      big houses, in reality nothing could be further from the truth, bridge may be played in                          the grand houses, but It is also played in: Peoples kitchens/dining rooms; Church and                          village halls: Pubs, clubs all over the country 

 

 

           Fiction

                       It is expensive to join a bridge club

           Fact

                  Some clubs do charge an annual fee, these are clubs that normally have their own                                premises, most clubs do not. Table fees are typically  £1 to £3 per evening, and this often                    includes tea, coffee, and free parking

                  Unlike other sports/pastimes no expensive kit is required, as in golf for example

                  we all share the same decks of cards provided by the club

 

           Fiction

                      You have to be very clever to play bridge

          Fact

                 Bridge is not a game you can learn in five minutes, but with professional training provided                   by the club the game can be learned in small sections, new aspects being introduced as                     the player progresses

          Fiction 

                      Bridge is boring

          Fact

                 Bridge is a game played by millions of people all around the world

                 Players with 50+years of experience are common

                 You never play the same hand twice, In fact different people playing the same hand often                   achieve a different result 

 

 

 

          Fiction

                      I can't play because I do not have a partner

          Fact

                  At Telford Bridge Club partners are not required, a suitable partner will always be found

                  Guests and new members are always made welcome and will be looked after
