St. Martin’s Activity Center Adult Classes

Beginning Bridge Lessons

Never played bridge before? This is the class for you! Have friends who would like to learn the game? Please let them know! This is a great class for people who have never played before or who played decades ago and are ready to begin playing again! Tom Jahnke is a certified teacher with the American Contract Bridge League. He has substituted at St. Martin’s several times and is excited to be our full-time bridge instructor! This class is always very popular. Here’s an idea: start a beginner bridge club with your friends and come to the Activity Center for instruction.
