The Naples Bridge Center has a long history of serving the bridge-playing community with games and education, dating back to 1970. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization it provides a premier environment for both learning and playing bridge. Visitors are always welcome. Classes are constantly being offered, and there are games every day, usually several!
All games are sanctioned by the American Contract Bridge League (ACBL) and directed by a staff of professionals. Easily reached from all areas of Collier County, the NBC features the nicest playing conditions in Southwest Florida. Parking lot expansion is in progress, and we hope to expand the building within the next year!
We are located at 5865 Golden Gate Parkway Naples, FL. 34116, just off I-75 at exit 105 and less than five miles from US 41.

THURSDAYS, 9AM - 11AM
(Beginning 1/10 for eight weeks)
**** "Bridge Basics 1" ****
Learn to play the greatest game ever invented! Bridge is an easy-to-learn game that you never need to quit learning! The powerful medical benefits of keeping your mind active are well established. You will be playing hands from the very first day!
SATURDAYS, 9AM - 11AM
(Beginning 1/12 for eight weeks)
**** "Bridge Basics 2" ****
Learn more about the basics of card play and defense. While Bridge Basics 1 concentrates on bidding, Bridge Basics 2 concentrates on card play! Take your tricks!
THURSDAYS, 9AM - 11AM
**** "Play & Learn" ****
At this popular and ongoing class, we play hands and then discuss them. What should I have bid? What should I have led? How should we have played this contract? What would be the best line of defense, including the opening lead? Every hand is a puzzle, but these hands are RANDOM and not created. Learning to play "real life" hands is a key step towards better bridge.
WEDNESDAYS, 9AM - 11AM &/or 7PM - 9PM
**** "CHAT" Games ****
In a "CHAT" game, players play a regular duplicate game, but a shortened version. During the play, moderators will come and advise players as they have questions. This is a GREAT way to learn!
(Beginning 2/2 for two weeks)
"Improve Your Bridge Memory"
In this two week intensive class students will learn the Five Principles of Recall, Memory Triggers and Mnemonics for bidding, and other various techniques to help when declaring and defending. You will learn the JFK Principle, the ARCH analysis for defense and much, much more!
(Beginning 2/16 for six weeks)
"Competitive Bidding for the Advancing Player"
Bidding in Bridge is much more competitive than it was in the past. Learn when to compete and how to use the various tools available such as doubles, two-suited bids, overcalls, preempts and how to answer these as the advancer. Learn the tools for dealing with interference by the opponents and when bids become preemptive rather than constructive. Practice hands every week.
((ALL LESSONS ARE $15 per session for members and $17/session for non-members. ("CHAT" games are $10/$12.) You do not need to register OR have a partner – just show up!))

I would love it if some of you can post some pictures and bridge news on the site.
If you want to use the facebook page to ask about a hand, I will try to answer as often as time permits. Perhaps some of out other experienced players will help out, as well.
Let's make this work!
