The Bridge Taster is the perfect introduction to playing bridge. During the session, participants will learn how to play Mini Bridge, which teaches hand evaluation and card play. Mini Bridge is designed for players of all ages, children and adults alike. The Bridge Taster is independent of the rest of the conference and attendance at any other session is not a requirement. Encourage your family and friends to come along!

The Bridge Taster will be on the RealBridge platform which incorporates audio and video. Participants must run a Camera and Mic Test before the Bridge Taster. Not all internet browsers support RealBridge, so players should find out in advance if they need to update or use a different browser to join the session. Apart from running the Camera and Mic Test, participants do not need experience of RealBridge before the session. Instruction will be provided.

If you have registered for the Bridge Taster, please print the one-page help sheet (below) and have it with you during the session.
