Aside from being a full-time professional Bridge teacher, Ranald is a highly experienced bridge player and has represented Ireland internationally and Leinster nationally. 

He is on the team selected to represent Ireland in the 2017 Teltscher Trophy, the Home International competition for over 60s. Different teams he was on were 2nd in both the 2017 Holmes-Wilson Trophy and National Men's Teams Geraldine Trophy. He and his pairs partner came 2nd in the 2017 Davidson Cup, the National Master Pairs Championship. In 2016, his team narrowly missed representing Ireland in the European Championships when they lost the final 100 board play-off with the eventual winners by just 9 IMPs. 

"I believe that students learn best when they're enjoying themselves and so there is a lot of interaction and variety in my classes. Try one and see!"

Ranald Milne

Beginner classes broadly follow the CBAI’s (Contract Bridge Association of Ireland) structure and guidelines, with several sessions of Mini-Bridge to start. Mini-Bridge is a variation that novices particularly enjoy because it involves them quickly in card-play and allows the intricacies of the game to unfold at a manageable pace.

For improvers, advanced and expert players, I have a large portfolio of presentation topics. I run regular seminars in Central Dublin for both improvers and advanced players (including the National Ladies Team) but would be delighted to tailor a series just for your club. 

Each session is normally 2½ to 3 hours with a short break in the middle. Each start with a presentation of the subject, followed by the playing of prepared hands and a discussion on the bidding and the play. Notes are provided at the end; where appropriate. The emphasis is on fun and interaction. 

Play & Learn Seminars are also available, by arrangement, for improvers, advanced and expert players. This is where 8 randomly dealt, pre-analysed boards are played followed by a discussion on the bidding and play.
