Bridge Lessons

Welcome to our site for those wishing to learn how to play bridge or improve their game as beginners/improvers.

The Cheltenham Bridge Club has a staged process whereby you can start with Bridge Lessons, practise at our beginner's practice sessions on Thursday afternoon and then move on and play the game at our ‘Gentle Bridge’ sessions. When you feel you are ready you can join in the club’s full programme of activities in the afternoons and evenings Monday to Saturday.

You can join any of the training and improvement sessions according to your level of ability/experience and a standby partner will be available, if needed.

All stages are run on a friendly and relaxed basis and will enable you to quickly make new friends and develop a bridge partnership of your own.

Classes began in October 2018 and all classes are full.
If you are interested in joining a class in 2019 - whether it be a weekend or weekly course or you would like more information, please contact Nicola Renshaw on
