A Helping Hand For Youth. A 5 Year Bridge Plan

This has been unfolded and approved by the Board of New Zealand Bridge at its last Board Meeting.The aims are to get more young people playing bridge, in schools, at home, on-line, in clubs…everywhere. They may play a little now and put away their knowledge for a few years. We hope many of them will just keep on playing but there are other priorities for many in one’s 20’ and 30’s.

We want to show that Bridge is truly a game for all ages. For more details contact Richard Solomon richard.solomon@nzbridge.co.nz or Jan France jan.france@nzbridge.co.nz
