Bridge Classes

Kate Hill,

Kathy and Kate bring a relaxed, humorous, and informative style to teaching. All of our classes have had fun and friendly people; come join us to learn this fascinating game or brush up on your current bridge skills. Bridge has the suspense of poker, the mental challenge of chess, and the excitement of athletic sports, all in a sociable setting where you are a participant, not just a spectator. Join in the fun.
