Free lessons at Redcliffe Bridge Club

There’s more to the game of Bridge than playing cards, according to the vice president of the Redcliffe Bridge Club.

Ross Shardlow says the friendships formed are just as important as the game itself.

“While it is a stimulating, complex game, it is a joy, and friendships evolve,” Ross says.

Redcliffe is known throughout the fraternity as one of the friendliest clubs.”

Members' holidays

His view is backed by former vice president Sue Kennard, who says the Redcliffe club is particularly sociable, with many members coming together for pre-COVID trips to Tangalooma, Stradbroke, Lady Elliott and Norfolk islands.

“Bridge is a very big world – there’s lots of groups and competitions,” Sue says.

“There’s a big congress on the Gold Coast every year that attracts more than 2000 players from 21 countries.”

COVID-safe venue

Ross says playing sessions at Redcliffe attract 40-50 people, with the club having a detailed COVID-19 plan that includes social distancing and temperature checks for every visitor.

“It’s a very cheap sport – it’s $5 a session to play and the sessions go for three-and-a-half hours and you get tea, coffee and biscuits,” he says.

Free lessons

Sue will hold free Learn to Play Bridge sessions from February 6 and says no experience is necessary.

There is a textbook available for $20, but buying it is not compulsory, she says.

The learn to play sessions run for 10 weeks on Saturdays from 9am-11am at the Redcliffe Bridge Club.
