Promotions of the game of bridge
UPCOMING promotions of the game bridge will take place in Arklow and Greystones, while lessons will be starting in Wicklow during September.
Bridge is a fascinating and challenging game, suitable for all ages. Players don’t need to be a mathematician or a card shark, as they can learn and play the game at their own pace.
After some basic lessons, players can dip their toe in the water at a local bridge club and/or play online.
Bridge players will be out and about promoting the game in the Bridgewater Shopping Centre, Arklow, on Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and in SuperValu, Greystones, on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Bridge generally costs an average of €5 to play. There are numerous clubs in Arklow, Wicklow, Greystones, Bray, Roundwood, Enniskerry and Newcastle.
