LI Bridge

Learn to play

Would you like to learn to play bridge?

You can contact any of the local clubs on Long Island. Some clubs offer teaching programs; others can make referrals.

Or you can call Carol Matthews, the Education Liaison for our unit (and district). If you are looking for individual lessons, she can give you the names of teachers in your area, or she can give your name to teachers in your area. She can tell you about adult education classes near you or if any beginning lessons are nearby.

You can call Carol at (631) 360-8456 or email her.

You can also download bridge lessons from the American Contract Bridge League or take the online lessons offered by Fifth Chair.
