May is Mentoring Month

If you are a beginner who would like some help to improve your game, or a mid-level player who wants help to move to the next level in bridge, the club invites you to apply for a mentor during May. Each mentee will be provided with a suitable mentor as partner for 2 sessions of bridge. The mentor will generally play the mentee’s system. The mentee pays the table money.

If you are a friendly more experienced bridge player who is available to play 2 sessions during the month with a club member we would like to sign you up as a mentor.

Please complete the application located under the screen and put it in the box provided. Applications close on 28 April. Contact Liz Van Der Hor on 62883031 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for any inquiries.
