ACBL Unit 503


Classes

Our bridge classes are the culmination of over twenty years of teaching bridge to members of our community. We offer courses for a wide range of people from those who have never played bridge the avid bridge players who want to improve their game.

We use up-to-date, successfully tested materials from leaders in the world of bridge education. They include at-home and in-class exercises in addition to written material. Some of the in-class exercises are available in electronic format so students can play the hands at home and receive commentary on their bidding and play (requires Bridge Baron software).

We have an outstanding and committed staff of teachers and volunteers who provide individual help to participants.

All of our classes are taught at our Bridge Center.

Please contact Valerie Baldwin at (650) 851-7810 email for more information.
