Learn to play contract bridge or brush up on your game. If you are a beginner, come with several friends to make a table of 4. Novices are welcome, however at least one table of 4 novice players is required for instruction. Learning to play or continuing to play bridge keeps those neural pathways clicking, develops new ones, and provides social interaction with other players.
