Bridge Basics and Beyond and the Chattanooga Bridge Club are offering the first beginning bridge class “Bridge Basics I.” This course is for individuals new to bridge or those who have been absent from bridge for a while. The first class begins on Saturday, September 11, 2021. This is an eight-week course and class starts at 9:30 and will finish at 11:30. Our approach to teaching bridge is a series of three 8-week courses. When a student has finished the three courses, they are ready to play social bridge or a beginning duplicate bridge game. Due to the club and ACBL guidelines, each participant needs to be fully vaccinated to participate in the course. Proof needs to be provided the first day of class.
