April 6th/7th The Wessex weekend at Cheltenham. The amazing cooperation from both Cheltenham BC and the Ladies College, enables us to offer this at very affordable rates, and is an amazing experience for the youngsters. £60 residential from 9.00.a.m. on Saturday, until 5.00.p.m. on Sunday. It is also a training weekend for both the England U21and U16 squads, so there are some very good and adventurous young players. The late night speedball is always fun.
Contact Joan Bennett 01491 579795 (or 07548 782 538 if you are lucky!) firstname.lastname@example.org
Bring your children/grandchildren. Both you and they will enjoy it, and you will find it VERY DIFFERENT from a normal club session. Alternatively, abandon them and enjoy the free time in Cheltenham. Pictured here are some of the children and Michael Byrne in a previous year.
This event is played on the second Monday of each month at Roke and Berrick Salome Village Hall (for directions please see Wallingford Bridge Club website). It is open to all members of the OBA who are at least 55 years of age by 1st May 2018. Younger players and visitors may play but are not eligible to win the trophy.

Having qualified for the eight-team Final for the third year in succession, Oxfordshire had high hopes of a first ever Tollemache victory. After three wins in a row on Saturday, the county lay 3rd overnight but the final three games were all lost and Oxon plummeted to last place on 54 VPs. The winners were Cambs & Hunts, despite their loss to Oxon on Saturday. The county was represented by Alan Wilson (capt) & Nick Smith; Kathy & Denis Talbot, Robert Procter & Michael Robinson; Ian Angus & Chris Cooper.
Congratulations to the winners: Matthew Covill & Nigel Birks, Emily Middleton & Diana Nettleton with +60 IMPs (see picture).
The runners up with +48 IMPs were Sandra Nicholson & Krys Kazmierczak, Andy King & Amr El-Kashef
