J’s Bridge Pad has been diligently working to provide you with a user-friendly environment for the bridge learning experience. We have the following to offer for your bridge education.
Mentor/Practice Sessions – Monday at 7 PM
While it is nice to play with your partner, you do not need a partner to play in these sessions. The session is on the Shark Bridge, and approximately 90 minutes long. We discuss each hand played, from the aspects of bidding, the play of the hand, and defense. For the fee, and other details click on Mentor
In addition, we can schedule a custom practice session for an individual, a pair, or a group of 4 or more at a mutually agreeable day and time. Contact us for details.
