Oxford Junior Bridge Club Competition 2017

The third Oxford Junior Bridge Club Competition was held at the Oxford Bridge Club on the afternoon of Sunday 19th November when twenty-two children, aged 8– 14 years, descended upon the balloon decorated premises, generating laughter and good will.

Prizes were awarded in three categories: Mini Bridge, Novice Bidders and Experienced Bidders. Pat Lewis, Chairman of the Oxford Bridge Club, presented the prizes and warmly congratulated all the children.

Congratulations to scorer, Diane Coe and Tournament Directors, Mike Fletcher and Peter Sherry, who managed to keep cards and children moving and playing in spite of the speed differentials and the cross table chatting! Organiser, Holly Kilpatrick, thanked the Chairman and Trustees of the Oxford Bridge Club, who had kindly given their premises, free of charge and also thanked the volunteers, who assist in running the competition and the club on Sunday afternoons.


In the Mini-Bridge section, first prize went to Oscar Ngong; joint second prizes were awarded to: Harry Ellis and Amelia Beacroft and Sami Soonawalla and Oliver Christianson.  In the Novice Bidders’ section first prize went to Dimi Fitzherbert  and in the “Experienced” Bidders section first prize went to brothers, Thomas and Jacob Potter and second prize to Aidan Saunders and Zane Soonawalla.

Junior Bridge Competition 20th Nov 2016

The second Oxford Junior Bridge Club Competition was held at the Oxford Bridge Club on the afternoon of Sunday 20th November when twenty-five children, aged 9 – 15 years, descended upon the balloon decorated premises, generating laughter and good will. The juniors came from a variety of schools around the city and county and from as far afield as Sonning Common, Reading and the Midlands! [Photos are by kind permission of David Bygott and Anthony Saunders]


Congratulations to our scorer, Diane Coe and TDs, Mike Fletcher and Peter Sherry, who managed to keep boards and children moving, in spite of the speed differentials and the cross table chatting! This year we merged the experienced bidders with the novices and awarded prizes in both sections.  The four pairs of mini-bridge players might have been low in numbers but were high in enthusiasm and played eight boards from a recent simultaneous pairs competition. Two young entrants have only been learning for four weeks!

At 4.15 p.m. we called a halt and everyone descended upon the tea table, groaning with goodies, mostly donated by parents, many of whom joined us for tea, while Diane feverishly attempted to get a result.


When presenting the prizes, organiser, Holly Kilpatrick warmly thanked the Chairman and Trustees of the Oxford Bridge Club, who had kindly given their premises free of charge. In the mini-bridge section, first prize went to Carl Shelley, whom, although playing with an adult, had played all the hands and chosen the contracts.  In the novice bidders section our winners were Jennifer Ellis and Jacob Hathaway from Sonning Common and in the “experienced” bidders section first prize went to Richmond Yeung and Inigo Sanchez-Asiain from the Dragon School.   Some of the results were extremely close and congratulations to all the children who took part. Full results are listed below:
