Bridge is one of the most enduring and popular games in the world. For over 100 years since it was first invented, people of all types from all walks of life, from Martina Navratilova to Mike Gatting, Omar Sharif to Radiohead, nine year-old to ninety year old, have been fascinated by the game. It is one of the most popular participation sports in Britain, with around three million people playing on a regular basis.
Why is bridge so enthralling?
It’s hard to put into words just what it is about bridge – you really need to try it! Part of the attraction is that it can be played by everyone, from all walks of life and of all ages together. It is a very sociable game – anyone can join a club, meet new people and make new friends in an environment where there are no social pressures and where everyone is treated as an equal.
But the main reason is the challenge which bridge offers – every single deal is different, every one poses a new problem and taunts you to find the solution! It’s frustrating when you don’t rise to the challenge, but tremendous when you are successful – whether through finding a great technical play, by outwitting your opponents, or by cooperating really well to achieve success with your partner.
