EBU MASTERS PAIRS 2019

Oxford Bridge Club is holding a heat of the Masters Pairs 2019 competition on Sunday 24 February.  This is a national two-session one-day green-pointed event held simultaneously at several different centres. 

It is open to all players below the rank of Regional Master. This includes: Local Masters, Club Masters, Area Masters, District Masters, County Masters, Masters, Advanced Masters, Star Masters, Tournament Masters or Premier Masters.

This event gives players an unusual chance to earn green points in their local area, and in the absence of higher ranked players. 
Further details can be found on the EBU website

Play starts at 11am, and is expected to finish at about 6pm. The entry fee is £12.00 per player. 

Please book and pay for your place in advance.

Further details and online booking can be found here.

Children-in-Need 2018 - Correction

Belated news.

In all the activity of the last two months we should remember that we raised money for Children-in-Need back in November while we were operating from Oxford City Football Club. 

Your Treasurer apologises for an error in the calculation of the total donations. In fact the final total was £1,037.41 - many thanks to all who contributed and especially to the team that did the work.

2019-2019-2019-2019-2019-2019-2019-2019-2019-2019

Happy New Year to All!

Profile of the OBC Building Project

Our architects for the extension and refurbishment at the club are Gray Baynes and Shew.  They have published a short article and some additional photographs about the project on their website here.

Celebrations and thank you - 12th December 2018

Building project completion was celebrated before the bridge on Wednesday.  Plaudits all round to the OBC team, the builders (Wooldridge and Simpson), the architects (Gray Baynes and Shew) and the quantity surveyor. Our appreciation also recorded to Oxford City Football Club who provided us with a temporary home between Easter and Christmas.
