Accredited Teacher: Laurelle McDonnell

SUNNYBANK BRIDGE CLUB, QLD 

It was an overheard conversation about bridge nine years ago that prompted me to sign up to beginners' classes with my husband. 

We had three very good teachers who helped us understand the game and always showed much patience with all the inevitable questions that I had. 

When the opportunity presented itself to start a new lot of lessons, my friend June Cross and I introduced the Joan Butts Teaching method which has been a wonderful success. 

I love playing Bridge because it is stimulating and challenging and I never stop learning. 

When I am teaching the new players something, it is so satisfying when I hear them say that something has just sunk in and made sense to them.
