Current Courses & Seminars

Here is the set of courses, seminars and events that are currently available.

Bridge for All - Year 1 Term 1 Autumn 2018

Three separate courses run on Monday afternoons, Tuesday evenings, and Thursday afternoons.

This is the first 10 week term of a 30 week course for beginners based on the English Bridge Union’s ‘Bridge for All’ programme, using the Acol bidding system. It is a carefully structured course that starts out by assuming no previous knowledge of cards.    It is also suitable for anyone who has played a little Bridge with friends and wants to learn more.  

Level: Beginners
Tutors: Ann Lee, Sandra Nicholson, Shirley Rawlings

Bridge for All - Year 2 Term 1 Autumn 2018

Three separate courses run on Tuesday evenings, Wednesday mornings and friday afternoons.

This course is open to those who have completed Year 1 of the Bridge for All course and to those with the equivalent knowledge of Bridge.  This course is designated as Next Step.

Please contact education@oxfordbridgeclub.com for further details if you are not one of our existing students.  

Level: Beginners
Tutors: Ann Lee, Steph Bliss, Shirley Rawlings

Saturday Tutorials 2018

We are running a series of seven, two hour tutorials on Saturday mornings during the Autumn Term.   These are primarily for students who have completed the Bridge for All year 2 course but they may be of interest to other players of an equivalent standard.   Five of the tutorials will review a specific topic from the course, giving a brief overview of the material that was taught followed by themed practice hands.   There will, in addition, be two tutorials on new ‘gadgets’ namely ‘Wriggling out of 1NT X’ and ‘Two Suited overcalls’.

Levels vary: Next Step+
Tutors: Ann Lee, Sandra Nicholson, Shirley Rawlings

Fast Start Bridge - Weekend course 11/12/13 January 2018

Learn Bridge in a Weekend - Fast Start Bridge

‘Fast Start Bridge’ is an intensive weekend course for those wanting to learn the rudiments of Bridge at a brisk pace. This is a practical course with a strong emphasis on play. By the end of the weekend you will have learnt the basics of bidding, play and defence enabling you to play Bridge in a social setting at home. You will also be ready to join term 2 of our Bridge for All course for beginners.

The cost of the course is £80 to include tea/coffee and biscuits. Lunch is available in one of the many cafes and restaurants in Summertown or you can bring a packed lunch to eat at the Bridge Club.

Special Guest Seminar - 16th March 2019

Michael Byrne Seminars


Oxford Bridge Club is delighted to welcome Michael Byrne back to the club on Saturday 16th March to give another day of seminars.    Michael is one of the country’s top players and a gifted teacher.   Many of you will have read his articles in ‘English Bridge’.

The topic for the morning session is 

  • ‘Opening leads: A look at not only what suit you should be leading but also the choice of card, and whether the auction will affect this.’   This seminar is open to everyone including BfA year 2 graduates.

The topic for the afternoon session is 

  • 'The Competitive Auction: A look at the new and different uses for 'double' together with tools that you may need in the modern world of competitive bidding.'  This seminar is for those with an NGS grade of Queen or above and for those playing in divisions 1 & 2 of the Wessex League.   The pace of play and the level of discussion will reflect this.  

Last year Michael’s seminars were fully booked with a waiting list.   Early booking is recommended.
