The February half-term was a break from school, but not from mental exercise as a number of bridge events for junior players took place. Unlike school, however, these proved to be very popular with the youngsters! Events included:
- At West Midlands BC a group who had played minibridge at school were introduced to bidding, and had even bid and made seven clubs before the two hour session had ended.
- At the Roehampton Club 18 youngsters, ranging in age from 6 to 14, with their parents, grandparents and helpers, were given a 2 hour introduction to mini bridge. The organisers report it was great fun - and not just for the children!
- Wimbledon BC had 20 youngsters learning minibridge. It proved very popular, with one parent reporting they have already played a few times at home. The club is hoping to hold more sessions in the Easter Holidays.
- In Guernsey, pupils in years 5 & 6 took part in the minibridge part of the EBED Students and Schools Sim Pairs. If your school or club would like to take part please see here for more information.
