Teaching schedule spring 2019

January to March 2019 timetable

For all the courses offered by Andrew Robson Bridge, please go to the our courses page of this website. If there is a course that you would like to take, but is not currently scheduled, please let me know and I will see if it is possible it to add it to the schedule. Note also that we will also be holding a number of free taster sessions for absolute beginners, anyone who is not sure what their standard is, or simply someone one who wants to see what we do and learn what we have to offer. One free taster session will be at 10am on January 17th 2019 at the North Oxford Association in Summertown (details here).

It is for those who know the basics of bridge (dealing, scoring, high card points etc) but want to improve and learn the Robson methods of bidding and play. You do not need to bring a partner, though it can be fun to sign up with a friend and learn together. Recently revised to include Stayman and Blackwood.
