KENT—Kent Park & Rec is bringing back the Kent Bridge Club, featuring the once ubiquitous card game popular with the ladies who lunched.
Bridge, a mainstay of the first half of the 20th century’s social scene, suffered a slow decline as more women entered the work force and technology provided games that could be played any time and without a partner. But technology tends to be isolating and the social contact, competition and mental work out that Bridge provides is creating a resurgence of interest in the pastime.
Park and Rec offers two levels of play: Experienced players meet Thursdays, 1 to 4 p.m., with beginners gathering Saturdays during the same hours. The groups meet at the Congregational Church Community Hall, 99B North Main Street.
