Support for College and University Students
If you are a student who either plays bridge or would like to learn, the Scottish Bridge Union is keen to help!
We can offer support to set up a club at your university or college, put you in touch with a local bridge club or other students. We offer on-line and 'face to face' teaching and playing.
We would like to tell you about the many opportunities there are for young people to play this wonderful game. If you are interested please contact Education (Marina Evans)
BridgeWhiz is a FREE online course designed to teach students in Years 7 through 13 the mind-building challenge, great fun, and competitive excitement of bridge, which will nurture your child’s team and individual competitive spirit. It builds social skills, enhances deductive reasoning and math abilities. Although part of the ACBL Educational Foundation, BridgeWhiz is run from the UK by UK accredited teachers.
We are offering new courses starting in January. See https://bridgewhiz.org/ for details.
