Bridge Lessons

Come and learn bridge in the friendly atmosphere of the Paraparaumu Bridge Club!

Our comfortable clubrooms are situated next to the Community Centre building, between the Paraparaumu Library and the Coastlands Aquatic Centre.

Every year the Club runs bridge lessons for beginners or those who have played before but feel that they may need a refresher course.

The lessons are FREE, so everyone is invited and welcome to come along and learn this fascinating game.

The lessons have unfortunately been completed for 2024, but a new set of lessons will start next year on Monday, February 10th, 2025, at 7pm and run for 10 weeks.

If you are interested in learning how to play Bridge, please ring the Club Secretary Anne Brunt (04 299 2717) or Linda Pender (04 905 5647) for information or to register for the lessons.

You’ll be taught by an accomplished player and a positive, experienced teacher and when the lessons finish, you will get the opportunity to participate in practice sessions to give you a feeling of what it's like to play at the club. You can start playing in full club sessions (which run Tuesday to Friday, with afternoon and evening sessions) when you feel ready.

You will be really welcome to join in playing at our club - your bridge future is in your hands.
