Surfers Paradise Bridge Club

How did you discover Bridge? When did you first start playing?
I remember seeing bridge on American TV shows many years ago. More recently I discovered that bridge was played on cruise ships and I thought it would be a good way to meet people on a cruise and at home. I started playing about six and a half years ago.

Why did you decide to become a Bridge Teacher?
I am a trained teacher with several years experience teaching and I thought I could make a contribution to our club in this way.

What do you enjoy most about playing/teaching Bridge?
Bridge is a great mental challenge with the added benefit of meeting lots of lovely people. The biggest enjoyment from teaching is knowing, from feedback, that students have advanced their knowledge and skill in the game from your lessons.

Tell us something most people don’t know about you?
I’m a bit of a sweet-tooth and enjoy preparing cakes and desserts.
