Brisbane Water Bridge Club

I learnt to play bridge at Brisbane Water Bridge Club 18 years ago. I always enjoyed card games and answered an advertisement in the newspaper for lessons. I enjoy Bridge as it is mentally stimulating and I enjoy the social interaction with other people. I have made many good friends through Bridge.
 
One day I took over the supervised play sessions at our club and enjoyed helping other people. It was a chance to give something back to the game I love so much. Then I started giving beginners lessons at the club. Some of my students have become good friends of mine.
 
Prior to playing bridge doing crosswords was an interest I shared with my late mother. We used to enter competitions and win prizes from time to time.
