Come and Play
Designed for our newest players after they have completed their first bridge class. The CBA provides an assistant to provide basic guidance to help our newest players begin to play bridge in a relaxed and casual environment.   Play with other players of similar experience.    A great way to meet other beginning bridge players and to practice the concepts learned in the "Introduction to Bridge " classes.     We will pair you with another player if you don't have a partner.
