BRIDGE NEEDS YOU
to teach the game to newcomers.
PLEASE THINK ABOUT IT! -

Having taught Bridge for 20+ years, I have created a wealth of documentation for all students from rank beginner to club player. To encourage more people to teach this amazing game, Inga and I are happy to make these available as a free resource to potential NEBA bridge teachers.

BEGINNERS
Our beginner's course booklets, units 1 - 8 were created BEFORE the EBU 'Standard English' programme and have been updated periodically since then.

The booklets are each designed to cover one term and are presented in an A4 format with approximately 20 bite sized pages of information per unit.
Of course there are hundreds of such teaching aids available on line but if you are even half interested in teaching bridge, they provide a ready made set of teaching notes from which you can plan a linear series of lessons.

IMPROVERS
The cry for recaps from students is constant and I have produced a few 'less formal' booklets with a touch of humour.
Three on 'BOG STANDARD BRIDGE', and the most recent themes are 'MANTRAS' and
'THE 60 WORST BRIDGE ERRORS.'

CLUB PLAYERS
For club players there are a series of lessons based around hands played in local clubs. These lessons use hands where standard declarer play or defensive techniques have worked well AND where errors at the table have led to poor scores.

RESOURCES
I have created 100+ A4 pages, each sheet illustrating 8 hands with brief notes.
They are divided into points of
Bidding - Declarer Play - Defence.
For each of these categorys there are hands divided into
Beginner - Foundation - Intermediate levels.

AIDE MEMOIRES on 'Basic Acol'
AIDE MEMOIRES on 'Conventional Bids'
(These are both two sided and laminated.)

'WHAT DO WE PLAY?' cards. 2 designs. A two sided card for beginners another for improvers (These are a simplified form of convention card designed to encourage students to discuss their system BEFORE they play with new partners.)

CONVENTIONS BOOKLET.
(This includes many of the standard conventions played by club players.)

SCORESHEETS
(We provide scoresheets for our teams league playing 12 boards and an aggregate pairs league playing either 12, 16 or 20 boards per match).

We would love to think that these resources might encourage you to teach the game, or to aid your present teaching, or even as a bridge player, to offer you some extra clarity to your own game. Feed back is most welcome!

If you would like any further information, drop me an email or tel. 0191 413 4224
The region needs more bridge teachers!

Neil & Inga Aiston.
