The County’s Constitution lists the overall objectives for the Association. The first and most important of these is “To promote and assist in the development of duplicate contract bridge in the county of Oxfordshire”.

It has set up teams responsible for carrying out the plan for the development of duplicate bridge in Oxfordshire.
