I am an ACBL-accredited teacher of beginners and intermediates in the Salisbury area (to include Lexington or Kannapolis).  Any group of four or more will learn a terrific game and have fun at the same time.  Call me at (980) 234-0373 for more information.

I offer an hour-long class each Monday that the Georgia Taylor Recreation Center in Winston-Salem is open. It begins at 11:30 am, prior to the duplicate bridge game that starts at 1:00 p.m., and is open to all current duplicate players at no cost.

This is an intermediate class for duplicate players. The session is more of a forum than a class as any attendee can ask to discuss any bridge topic of interest. Everyone is encouraged to bring subjects to discuss to the session. Feel free to bring your lunch, too.
