This is one of the club premier events, attracting Blue Points, and is played over 36-40 boards. 

Entries can be made via the online entry form, or by contacting the Tournament Secretary directly, via ts@oxfordbridgeclub.com

Entry fee: £9.00 (includes tea/coffee and refreshments).  

OBC Mixed Pairs Competition 2018

The club's Mixed Pairs Competition will take place on Thursday 15 February, at 7.15pm. The winners will receive the Winnie Ling Trophy. This event is always held on a date that is as close as possible to the the date of Winnie's birthday, which was on 22 February. 

This event will be played as a Howell movement if possible, so that all pairs play all other pairs.

Entry in advance is not required - just turn up on the night.  Standard table money. 

OBC Novice Pairs Competition 2018

The club's Novice Pairs competition for the Morrie Marsh Trophy will take place on Monday 21 May, at 7.15pm. 

This competition is restricted to 'Novice Pairs' who are full members of Oxford Bridge Club. Pairs who are not eligible to win the competition are welcome to play in the session but they cannot win the Trophy.

For the purposes of this competition a ‘Novice Pair’ is a partnership in which both players

  • Either have fewer than 200 Masterpoints (below Club Master) and have not previously won this or any other club trophy, excluding the Roger Hughes Trophy.
  • Or are currently following a Bridge for All Year 1 or Year 2 course run by Oxford Bridge School.

Players with previous experience of playing duplicate bridge who have returned to the game after a long gap, and those holding a significant number of masterpoints from a non-EBU organisation, are not considered Novices for this event. 

The Novice pair with the highest score will win the Trophy. The Trustees reserve the right to review the status of all competing players. To that end, the winners will not be announced on the night.
