Description

Do you know that Bill Gates and Warren Buffett play Bridge to stay mentally sharp? Come and learn the challenging brain game and mind sport with us!

The BridgeWhiz mission is to teach the great sport of bridge to a new generation of school children. Bridge is a trick-taking card game using a standard 52-card deck. In its basic format, it is played by four players in two competing partnerships, with partners sitting opposite each other around a table. Millions of people play bridge worldwide in clubs, tournaments, online and with friends at home, making it one of the world's most popular card games.

With its math-driven nature and requirement of keen deductive reasoning, young players out-scored their non-playing counterparts on the 2007 Iowa Test of Basic Skills by 39.31% in Science, 24.22% in Math and 22.74% in Social Science.

Having fun is our primary goal. The BridgeWhiz course is delivered in modules. The first module covers the topics of table logistic, Play of the hand in Notrump and developing tricks using promotion, long suits and the finesse.

After the completion of this 8-week module you will have the opportunity to register for your first tournament. Graduating students are offered opportunities to continue lessons with the Basic Bridge Module 2 course.
