You can take these classes in bridge at the Darien Community Association, or participate in a drop-in (no registration necessary) open game of duplicate bridge:

Duplicate Bridge Open Game

Tom Hunter of Come Play Bridge will return as our duplicate bridge director. Our Monday game is a drop-in play, $13 open game, without a DCA membership requirement, to help players obtain more master points.

Tom will be using hands from The Common Game, so hand records will be available. Games will be stratified, and Tom will also be available both before and after the game for questions and discussion.

This challenging game is held in the Garden Wing every Monday, starting from Sept. 10, at 12:30 p.m. from September until May.
