Learn to Play Bridge at the Hot Springs Village Card Club

The Village Card Club offers beginning bridge lessons starting Monday, September 18, from 9:00 to 11:30 a.m. This ten-week course will feature a lesson along with a hands-on workshop each week so you can apply the concepts learned.

Bridge – the ultimate partnership game – is a game of skill, communication, and infinite possibilities. Worldwide, millions of people play it at home. Many also play duplicate bridge in clubs and tournaments to enjoy its social and competitive aspects. Studies have shown that playing strategic games, like bridge, helps keep your brain healthy. The Alzheimer’s Association has even included playing bridge in its “10 Ways to Love Your Brain.”

Join us on September 18 and learn what bridge is about. The Village Card Club is at 1101 DeSoto Boulevard, across the breezeway from the Woodlands Auditorium. For more information, contact:
