The Bridge Club, 14 Rubislaw Terrace,
(opposite Harlaw Academy).
A new session 2016-2017 begins on Wednesday 28th September at The Bridge Club, for P6 & P7 pupils who are interested in learning the game of Bridge. Sessions start after school till 4.45 pm. Mini-bridge tuition and refreshments are free.
Teams from Aberdeen Primary Schools, have consistently done well in Scottish mini-bridge Championships winning the tournament on numerous occasions.
Some of our juniors, are now representing Scotland at international events all over Europe. This year in Latvia one of our under 25 players who began learning when in P6 won the European junior pairs gold medal. We find our youngsters quickly learn to love the game and it has no barriers to age, race or gender. It opens doors all over the world for those who share the same love of the game.
If your child is interested, he/she will learn many skills such as quick counting and deductive reasoning by working within a partnership to reach a set goal. Social skills improve because of the etiquette which is taught at the bridge table. Above all, it is fun over the Winter and Spring terms.
Bill Gates of MICROSOFT is a great advocate of the game of Bridge in developing young people’s thinking skills. His partner is Warren Buffett.
“In business you need to think logically, you have to remember details of all kinds, you have to have strong mental acuity and you need EXACTLY THE SAME ATTRIBUTES TO SUCCEED IN THE GAME OF BRIDGE.”
