St. Louis Bridge Games, New Comers Classes & Lesson, Social Groups

Welcome to J’s Bridge Pad.


We had our first Swiss game on December 20th and considering the interest we had we have scheduled a game on January 3rd at 4 PM. For participating details click on the picture above.

Modern Convention Series on Thursdays at 7 pm begins with the first class on Jan 21 and concludes on March 4. Click on picture above for the class details.


J’s Bridge Pad has been diligently working to provide you with a user-friendly environment for bridge learning experience. We think we have found that in Shark Bridge. We have the following to offer for your bridge education.

Mentor Sessions – Monday at 7 PM

While it’s nice to practice with your partner, it’s not necessary that you have one for these Mentor sessions.  We will assign you a partner.  The session is on the Shark Bridge, and approximately 90 minutes long. We have a mini-lesson at the beginning of a session, followed by practice hands. We discuss each hand played, from the aspects of bidding, the play of the hand, and defense. Pay your session fee and Email me your reservation at least a day before the session. I will send you the link for the session by the session day.  For the fee, and  other details click on Mentor

Beginners’ Bridge: 

This 3 class series covers basic bridge terms, rules, introduction to bidding, and counting points. At the end of the class, you will be ready to play some bridge with your friends online.  Click on Beginners for the class details. We offer these classes several times a year. Watch this space for the next class. 

Modern Conventions Series – Starting Jan 16, 2021  

A great opportunity for beginner/Intermediate players with basic bridge knowledge or a social bridge player who would like to learn the modern bridge conventions and improve their game or could be a refresher of the modern bidding system. These are stand-alone classes so you can attend any or all of the classes. Watch this space for the date of the next one starting in a few weeks. Click on Modern for the details.

Basic Plus series 

Basic plus series includes a wide variety of topics suitable for beginners and intermediate players alike. For the list of topics and schedule click on Topic. For other details of classes such as fees, click on Basic+.  We offer these classes several times a year. Watch this space for the next class. 

You may know that J’s Bridge Pad has been closed since March 16. In light of the COVID-19 November surge worldwide, for the safety of our members – the community most at risk for COVID-19,  jPad will remain closed. We will revisit after the holidays. 

Maybe someday J’s bridge Pad can hold a group as big as the one in the photo below!
