WHY LEARN BRIDGE?
Bridge is the most popular card game in the world. It can be played by anyone from age 5 to 100+!
The benefits for children include improving skills in numeracy, problem solving, memory and concentration.
For older players research has shown that bridge can even have health benefits as the mental stimulation helps keep the brain active.
Bridge can be played at many levels... ranging from a social foursome (an excuse for a cup of tea and a gossip!), right up to local, national and international competitions. At whatever level you play, you are guaranteed exercise your mind and meet a new network of friends!

BRIDGE IS FUN!
One of the comments I often hear from my own students is how bridge has added a new dimension to their lives.
As well as the intellectual and competitive elements, the social side of bridge cannot be underestimated. Many lifelong friendships are formed at the bridge table!
BENEFITS FOR CHILDREN
Card playing helps children to identify numbers, similarities and sequences.
Children love being clever and working things out - and winning. These are all possible when children learn to play MiniBridge, but because it is a partnership game they will also learn that they need to co-operate, share information and combine as a team to beat the opposition.
