Learn to Play Bridge

Finding a Bridge Teacher

The ACBL also has a “Find a Teacher” page. If none are suitable, go to your local duplicate clubs and ask around.

Finding a Bridge Professional

There are bridge professionals who charge roughly $50 to $100 per club session to be your partner and teach you as you play. Their rates are higher for tournaments and often include incentives for winning.
