Mentor/Mentee Program Is Back for 2023!

The Mentor Mentee program restarted in October 2022 after a couple of years being dormant due to the COVID-19 pandemic.


A survey taken after the Fall/Winter 2022-2023 session indicated that the program was well received but there were areas where improvement could be made. In particular the program session was too short especially since it went over the Holiday season and that flexibility was very important. The program is still going to have a specific time frame. The program coordinators will work with the mentors and mentees who cannot work with the proposed time frame to establish time frames that will work for them.

With this program, a more experienced player (mentor) partners with a less experienced player (mentee) to assist the mentee in improving his or her game. The mentor is expected to be a willing and enthusiastic teacher and coach. The mentee is expected to have some experience in non-supervised duplicate bridge club games (in person or on-line).

When paired by the mentoring coordinators, the mentor and mentee will be expected to play at least three games together and hopefully more during the proposed time frame or the time frame worked out by the mentor, mentee, and program coordinators. Each participant pays his or her own fee for each sanctioned game played. Note that casual games on BBO are free.

Because there is a vast difference in experience level among our members and specific interests in type of play (e. g.  face-to-face or on-line, limited or open games) and the days and times one wishes to play, we ask those interested in this program to fill out a questionnaire that can be accessed by clicking the applicable link. Please submit by May 19, 2023.

Questionnaire for Mentees.

Questionnaire for Mentors.


Questionnaires are also available at the club. Bring completed paper questionnaire to the club or mail to:

The proposed time frame for the next session is June 1, 2023 to August 31, 2023. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please contact Mary Sullivan or John Calderbank at

This program is yet another example where our members can share and grow together.  We encourage you to participate as either a mentor or mentee or as both.
