Fiske is recognised as one of Australia’s top bridge teachers and is an Honorary Teaching Fellow of the Australian Bridge Federation .
Since learning bridge from his grandmother as a child in England, he has been playing competitively for nearly 50 years and has been teaching the game for over 35 years.
He was an English Grand Master and enjoyed success at county and national level, frequently representing both London and Cambridgeshire before moving to Perth in 2008. He has since won many state events in WA including the WA Open Teams on three occasions and the Western Seniors Pairs twice. In 2016 he helped the WA Open team finish runners up at the Australian National Championships. Teaching, however, is his real passion and he runs courses at several clubs helping players of all standards from complete beginners to advanced. In addition he offers private tuition and one-to-one coaching.
Fiske is particularly interested in bidding theory and has a thorough knowledge of all the most popular bidding systems including Acol, Standard American and Precision. His teaching style is to try and keep everything clear and concise but above all he believes that his pupils should have fun as they learn!
In 2018, Fiske will be running three courses at an intermediate level. Each course will run for four weeks on Wednesdays from 10 am to 12 noon. The topics for these courses are –
- Improving your declarer play, commencing February 28
- Improving your defensive play, commencing July 18
