They meet at the club on Thursday afternoons at 2pm, for friendly chatty bridge, with a break for tea and biscuits. Please come along with a partner. Cost is £2.50 plus 1p a hundred.

Wessex League
Wessex League

Huge congratulations go to the Oxford A team who won League One of the Wessex League without losing a game. This is the first time that Oxford have won in the top division since 2000 - 2001, and only the fifth time since the inception of the Wessex League in 1964-1965. They represented the county in the Garden Cities Regional Final held on 6 May. 

Oxford B triumphed in League Two and will be joining the A team in League One.

OBC has now teams in all five divisions of the Wessex League. Many thanks to everyone who has represented the club this season. Click here for further information about our 2016-2017 Wessex League teams and links to the league tables.
