The English Bridge Union is committed to the development of Bridge, and consequently puts great emphasis on education and learning. These pages have something for everyone: for those wanting to learn how to play, for those wanting to teach and for those who want to become tournament directors at local club, county, national or even international level.

The English Bridge Union works closely with the charity English Bridge Education & Development on all education matters relating to bridge. Be sure to check out their web pages.

The EBU runs a range of competitions and events for less experienced players. Please click here for further information on our Really Easy Programme.

Love Bridge? Why not teach it?!

Do you love bridge? Do you want to share this enthusiasm with others? Do you want to make bridge more than just a hobby?

If 'yes' then you should attend one of our Club Teacher Courses and learn to be a bridge teacher.
These very successful and popular courses will help you learn how to teach bridge using the Bridge for All Programme, expertly guided by one of our very experienced tutors.

You can learn more about these courses using the link for Club Teacher Training to the right of this page which also provides details on courses which are planned.

We set up these courses across England in direct response to demand, so if your club or county needs new blood and you are ready to help bring newcomers into our great game, why don't you get your club/county secretary to get in touch to see what can be arranged?

The course is also an excellent starting point for those who want to teach bridge independently. Read more about our teaching community by reading the EBTA link in the Education Menu on your right.
