Sessions

We run the following sessions at Sydney Bridge Centre every week.
We operate from three venues. The midweek games and lessons are either at the NSW Writers’ Centre, in Callan Park, Rozelle (Map) and also at Goulburn St (First Floor, 162 Goulburn St, East Sydney). Our Saturday Games are held at Henley.
