Southwest Florida's #1 Place to Learn and Play Bridge!
NAPLES BRIDGE CENTER
NAPLES BRIDGE CENTER

Welcome to the Premier Bridge Club in Naples, Florida

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.  And we plan 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. 

For more information call (239) 455-4445 or e-mail us at naplesbridge@gmail.com

 

Class Schedule

MARCH/APRIL CLASSES

♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦

 

SATURDAYS, 9AM - 11AM
(Beginning 3/9 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! This is the official ACBL teaching series.

 

THURSDAYS, 9AM - 11AM
(Beginning 3/14 for eight weeks)

**** "Bridge Conventions" ****

Learn ALL the most popular conventions used in 21st-century bridge! This is the official ACBL series teaching course.

THURSDAYS, 9AM - 11AM
(Ongoing)

**** "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
(Ongoing)

**** "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!

SATURDAYS, 9AM

"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!))
