Richard and Sue have lived in Bedfordshire for over 30 years, where they have brought up their three children. They both spent their careers in education and their skills of teaching and organising activities will certainly be utilised hosting bridge holidays.
Richard learnt to play bridge at the age of 11, but only set foot in a bridge club after retiring in 2016 and soon became fascinated by the game and has taken every opportunity to improve his knowledge. He is an EBU qualified teacher and director and directs regularly F2F and on-line. Representing the county and playing in congresses satisfies his competitive streak but he equally enjoys playing socially with friends. Most importantly he recognises the difference between competitive and social bridge! He is currently teaching a large group of beginners, but has also run refresher courses for improving players, workshops for experienced players and has tutored partnerships keen to improve, not to mention the endless requests for advice he receives from club members by e-mail.
Sue is a more recent convert to the game and now enjoys playing at the local club and on-line. She has excellent organisational skills and will ensure the sessions run smoothly and everyone feels welcome and involved in all the activities.
They both keep fit and enjoyed running for several years, although Sue now has substituted exercise classes for her running and their marathon days are behind them! They both read extensively, enjoy walking and love travelling and experiencing other cultures.
They are confident you will appreciate their hosting and that you will have a sociable and relaxing holiday where everything runs smoothly and all the sessions are appropriately paced and above all enjoyable.
