Bridge

Watch This Is Atlanta on PBA30 Atlanta's PBS StationIf you were asked to think of a card game kids might enjoy, UNO, Go Fish, or Crazy Eights might come to mind. But contract bridge?

It probably wouldn’t be your first choice, yet it’s a mentally challenging game, and promotes math, reading and language skills as well as teamwork - so what’s not to like?

Atlanta Junior Bridge teaches the game to young people ages 6 - 18 and holds tournaments around the metro area. The organization has taught more than 400 kids in the last 12 months as the game grows in popularity with younger fans.

And as the players get younger, the games go faster. Apparently the hardest thing about teaching kids is getting them to slow down!
