Keep Improving Your Game

This fall, we will be offering lessons for beginner, novice, and intermediate players. 

The Beginner 1 lessons will all be online, regardless of when our club re-opens.

We still don't know when we are going to re-open our club (it depends on our local health authorities), so all of the lessons in September and October are online, and after that we will have to see. The face-to-face lessons that were planned for October have been postponed indefinitely.

The fee for the two-and-a-half-hour workshops is $20 for members/ $25 for non-members. The fee for the five-week courses is $75 for members/ $85 for non-members. The Play of the Hand (Suits) five-week course charges an additional $20 for a textbook. The fee for the Bidding for Intermediate Players four-week course is $70 for members/ $80 for non-members (includes supplementary materials). 

Click here for our fall schedule. We will be adding more fall lessons from time to time, including perhaps some for open players, so please keep checking.

It is not necessary to be a member of our club to take these lessons.

Lessons for New Players

Our club offers two five-lesson courses for players who either want to learn to play bridge or who have been away from the game for a while and wish to reboot. These courses are imaginatively titled Beginners 1 and Beginners 2 respectively.

The end of Beginners 1 and the start of Beginners 2 are separated by several weeks to give the Beginner 1 graduates an opportunity to practise playing bridge.

Details about these lessons can be found on our Beginner Lessons page. The price is $85 for Beginners 1 (includes the cost of the textbook) and $75 for Beginners 2 (it uses the same textbook as Beginners 1). 

For those who might be interested in learning how to play bridge but aren't sure, we offer Learn Bridge in a Day (LBIAD) - a one-day session that gives its participants a taste of bridge. The next LBIAD session is scheduled for January 2022.

It is not necessary to be a member of our club to take these lessons.

How to Pay Your Lesson Fees

You can pay your lesson fee in one of these two ways:

Send an etransfer to:
No password is required.

Alternately, you can write a cheque payable to Grand River Bridge Club
(not GRBC) and mail it to:

Bev Pope
40 Piccadilly Square
New Hamburg, ON
N3A 0C7


Please note that in addition to paying for your lessons, you must also register for your lesson(s).

If you forget to register but rather just send us an etransfer with no identifying information, we have no idea who you are or how to contact you. This has already happened several times, and it has taken a team of trained detectives to figure out who made the payment, what it is for, and how we can deliver the desired service.
