Club Refurbishment: Thank you for your input

Folowing the presentation by our architects at the Christmas party on 13th December, we were seeking your views on which of two possible interior finishes you would prefer.  The consultation phase is now complete. Thank you for all your responses and comments.  If you want to review the "mood" boards you will find them in the section of the website on property refurbishment.

Two seminars on teams play with Michael Byrne

Oxford Bridge School is delighted to present two seminars on teams play with Michael Byrne. These will take place on Saturday 17th March 2018. Michael is a professional bridge player and teacher, based in Manchester. As well as significant successes as a player, he has coached several junior teams to international success. 

There will be two sessions:

  • morning session for intermediate/advanced players. This is likely to suit you if your NGS lies between an 8 and a Jack. 
  • afternoon session for expert players. This is likely to suit you if your NGS is Queen or above. 

In each of the seminars there will be a presentation, discussion, and a chance to practise putting your newly acquired knowledge into use.

Duplicate Minibridge - NEW
Duplicate Minibridge - NEW

Duplicate Minibridge sessions are run for the benefit of attendees at year 1 of the Bridge for All course. 

What happens? About 8 hands are played in a 2 hour period. The session is organised as a “duplicate session” and is scored manually.

“Duplicate session” means that each partnership plays against different pairs, changing position after each round.  Each board is played multiple times during the session. The scoring is arranged such that each N-S pair is trying to do better on each board than other N-S pairs in the room and similarly for E-W pairs.

When can I play? Wednesday afternoons from 2.00 to 4.00pm from 18th October until 6th December - as listed in the calendar. Table money is £4 per session.

If you are interested in reading about MiniBridge then you can find detailed information on the EBU website.

Themed Practice Hands sessions - NEW
Themed Practice Hands sessions - NEW

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.

So, for example, if you want to practice your slam bidding come along to the session on Thursday morning 14th December.
