New bridge teacher

Dalby Herald - - NEWS -

DALBY Bridge Club is end­ing the year strongly in prepa­ra­tion for 2019.

Through­out 2018, one of the club mem­bers, Re­becca Knight, worked to be­come an ac­cred­ited bridge teacher.

The qual­i­fi­ca­tion means Ms Knight is now en­dorsed as a bridge teacher by the Aus­tralian Bridge Fed­er­a­tion.

Ms Knight plans to start a be­gin­ners’ class in the new year.

Club pres­i­dent Diane Wen­ham ac­knowl­edged Ms Knight’s com­mit­ment, shown in her teach­ing roles and by keep­ing abreast of di­rec­tors’ rul­ings at work­shops in Bris­bane.

Mrs Wen­ham said the bridge club hadn’t had some­one like Ms Knight in the past.

“She’s quite good with (new play­ers), she nur­tures them for the next few months un­til they get on their feet,” Mrs Wen­ham said.

Mrs Wehnam de­scribed bridge as a good way to keep your brain ac­tive as you got older, but it’s not just a game for el­derly play­ers.

“They’re a very friendly group of men and women, good com­pany when you’re older and if you’re on your own,” she said.

“It would be bet­ter if we could get some younger peo­ple started too.”

If any­one is in­ter­ested in join­ing a be­gin­ners’ bridge class in Dalby, con­tact Ms Knight by call­ing
