This is a competition for novice players and will be held in place of Learn and Play on Monday 21 May at 7.00 pm (play starts at 7.15 pm).
Anyone is welcome to participate, but to win the trophy you must be both a genuine novice and a member of Oxford Bridge Club.
There will be a host, so you can come along without a partner; however, if you play with the host, you won't be eligible to win the trophy.
As this is a competition with master points you won't be able to ask for help or use a crib sheet.
To check to see if you qualify as a novice, please see the definition on this page.
Our first session at Oxford City Football Club took place on Easter Monday. The room is laid out with 15 tables and there is still a little space to move about!
Over the Easter weekend a group of volunteers collected everything we need to play bridge from the club house and transported it to our temporary home at Oxford City Football Club in Marsh Lane. As of mid-afternoon on Easter Sunday all is ready for playing bridge as you can see from the photos below.
Many thanks to all who helped. From the door of the room you can see a partial view of the main pitch where the football takes place.
For those who would like to know more abouit our hosts you can click go to the Oxford City Football Club website. The next home match is on Easter Monday afternoon at 3.00pm against Chippenham Town - see fixtures and results.
OBC will play using new table arrangements from the start of the new financial year. The Director of each session will now use a whistle to indicate the start of play and to signal the move for the next round. No player may leave the centre circle during play.

Those readers who keep a close eye on the calendar will know that for some time OBS has been running "Practice Hands" sessions for students. The hands that are used are selected from resources made available to our qualified bridge teachers – each session has a specific theme linked to a particular facet of the game.
The set hands being used for the improvers sessions may be of interest to players wanting to practice a particular element of their game. The specific topic for each Thursday morning session is listed in the calendar entry for each session.
Advice is available from the supervisor of the session and there is a handout with a commentary on the hands. The session is not scored. You are welcome to come with or without a partner. The table money is £5.
