Montrose Bridge Club is offering free tuition, starting in January 2015, to people of all ages who are interested in learning to play, or learn to play better, what is universally regarded as the world’s best card game.

If you wonder if bridge is for you, or if you’ve always wanted to learn but have been afraid it’s too difficult, members of Montrose Bridge Club have picked out some reasons why millions around the world are hooked on this fascinating game.

Bridge can be a lifelong pursuit. It takes only rudimentary knowledge to begin playing and enjoying bridge but, as any player will tell you, this is not a game for those who demand instant gratification. Learning to play well takes time and effort and the game is impossible to master. But that’s precisely why bridge is so popular and why it’s called ‘the game for a lifetime’.Bridge also caters to all physical conditions and disabilities so players can actively pursue their pastime throughout their entire lives.

Bridge will never bore you: the game can be exciting, challenging, frustrating and humbling but it will never be boring. There are more than 750 trillion possible hands, so you’ll see something new every time you play.

Bridge stimulates the brain. It is one of the best ways to maintain mental sharpness in older age.
