YOUNGSTERS across the county are being encouraged to take up bridge.

Sussex County Contract Bridge Association (SCCBA) is calling on children of all ages to take on a new mental challenge by trying one of the world’s most popular card games.

Starting this month, several local bridge clubs are offering free bridge tuition to schools and colleges in the county, including Worthing.

Andy Ryder. chairman of SCCBA, added: “Bridge has picked up a bit of a reputation for being on older person’s game, but some of the best players in the world are under 25.”
