Did you know that an estimated 25 million Americans play bridge? They play because it’s fun and it’s exciting. They play because of the mental and social stimulation. But, most importantly, they play because of friendships they have formed throughout the years.

Come see why bridge is so appealing. Come to Knoxville’s Learn Bridge in a Day® seminar on July 21. You will be introduced to the basics of playing contract bridge. This seminar is for you if you have never played or have played in the past and are looking for a refresher course.

Kevin Wilson, a Knoxvillian and nationally recognized bridge teacher and professional, will conduct this Learn Bridge in a Day® seminar at the Knoxville Bridge Center.

Current players will be on hand to help with the seminar and to answer your questions. Bring a friend or come by yourself. Your new best friend just might be waiting to meet you!

Seminar participants will be also able to attend a Beginning Bridge class on each of the next two Tuesdays at no additional charge.

Bridge Lessons for Newer Players on July 24th

What is this game called Bridge? It is a fascinating card game that NEVER gets boring!

Bridge consists of three components – bidding, playing the hand, and scoring. You will learn the basic tools and strategies for playing bridge plus the importance of a successful partnership in winning bridge. It is also a social game where players meet new people and develop friendships that will last a lifetime. In addition, health researchers believe that bridge stimulates mental function and may help to delay the effects of aging on the brain.

To learn more about this exciting game, come to our next Beginning Bridge class on Tuesday evening, July 24, at 6 pm. Bring a friend or come by yourself. Your new friends are waiting to meet you!

Our Beginning Bridge lessons have been a huge success throughout the years. After completing the lessons, you will most likely want to continue to play in bridge games offered at the Bridge Center.

The first two weeks of classes are free. Beginning the third week, the fee is $5 for each lesson that you attend. What a deal! It is hard to imagine anything as worthwhile and inexpensive as bridge.
