My name is Jack Rouse and I am currently giving bridge lessons for Thirsk U3A.

I qualified as a EBU club director in 2012, and the following year became a member of the English Bridge Union Teaching Association (EBUTA).

I have access to teaching resources via the EBU teachers website and would be happy to assist anyone wishing to set up a bridge group.

Having taught mini-bridge at a local school,I  would re-commend this for beginners.


Bridge is the most popular and challenging card game in the world. The combination of possible hands dealt are almost Incalculable.

Playing bridge regular exercises the brain, and could delay the onset of dementia.

Bridge players live longer.

Bridge is fun!

The leader of the Hadleigh Castle U3A's Bridge Group has developed a website which includes lessons and quizzes. It can be found at:
