Education Overview

The Canberra Bridge Club takes pride in our high quality teachers and our continuing education program.   The Club caters for ALL levels of players from absolute beginners to the very experienced, very competent player.  The education services we provide are divided into broad categories -- one activity moves across ALL categories, Mentoring in May.

Barbara Toohey, Ann Pettigrew and Jeanette Grahame are ABF accredited and lead our dedicated team of teachers and supervisors.   

From time to time the Club invites other leading teachers to present workshops and courses for players of all levels.
