Small Group Private Bridge Lessons

Join one of our existing public classes, private classes listed below or get a group of friends together and host private lessons in your home or local facility.

Private Group Lessons include:

  • 8 Lesson Packages
  • 2 Hour Sessions
  • Groups of 4, 8, 12, or 16 players
    (two table minimum is recommended)
  • Instruction includes a handout and detailed illustration of concepts using cards on the table approach with pre dealt hands to illustrate the concepts.
  • Tables supplied, if needed

Hosting at an individual’s home brings down the prices or I can secure rental at one of the local facilities I have access to in Arlington, VA. If you are interested in me securing a facility and have a reasonable size group, I can investigate other facilities in your area.

There are openings on Tuesdays and Thursdays
for Supervised Play of the Hand

Class Size: Groups of 4 people only are given individual attention in play of the hand, basic bidding, and defense to improve their bridge game and make them competitive in the duplicate or rubber bridge world.

Methodology: We will play 12 to 16 hands. Each hand will be discussed with the players as to the bidding, play, and defense to improve understanding of ways to improve each area. The teacher will discuss the highlights of each hand with the students. Materials needed are pads to take notes. Card Table, bridge hands will be provided by the teacher.

Location: At Home of one of Players

Cost: TBD depending on lessons purchased – Four, six, or eight week packages available. The dates for the sessions will be discussed with students depending on the players availability to all meet for lessons.

Call Gene at (703) 286-5959 for availability, pricing and more information.
