Events, Holidays, Lessons and Workshops
Want to learn to play bridge or brush up your skills in a traditional setting? I regularly travel throughout Australia teaching at bridge workshops and speaking at events. I also conduct teacher training days through my role as the Australian Bridge Federation Education Program Coordinator.
A couple of times a year I also host Bridge Holidays, which are an excellent opportunity to get away for a few days, meet new people, learn some new skills, and play a lot of bridge. These holidays are always enjoyable and receive a lot of praise.
