Lessons 2023

This year the Upper Hutt Bridge Club will run 2 series of Beginners lessons, one in the daytime in February, and one in the evening in June.

Upper Hutt Club members can join any lesson for free. For beginners and new members, the cost is $30 which is deducted from the first year’s membership. Those who have completed the lessons usually play bridge Thursday evening in the junior section, or Wednesday or Friday afternoon in a friendly atmosphere where an allowance is made for their ‘beginner’ status. 

Beginners Lessons – Daytime

Lessons start Wednesday 15 February, 1:00 pm, at the Club Rooms, 98 Pine Avenue, Upper Hutt. The lessons run for 12 weeks with each lesson being about 3 hours. The lessons teach the game using the ACOL bidding system and are based on NZ Bridge’s teaching of bridge for beginners. 

Beginners Lessons – Evenings
