Find a D17 Teacher

The D17 Education Committee has created a list of D17 instructors to help you learn, play and grow your game. 

The instructors have given permission for their contact information to be published on our website. Our recommendation is that you reach out to an instructor of your choice to learn more about the bridge education programs he or she offers.

If you would like your name and contact information removed from the list, wish to update your information or are a D17 instructor and wish to be included, please contact Sharon Smith:

Clubs are also great resources for bridge education.  Please check with your local club(s) for details.
