Welcome to the Summertown Bridge Club Website!

We are a friendly bridge club playing duplicate bridge every Monday evening, using computer-dealt boards and wireless scoring.

Visitors may only play on ordinary club nights five times in a calendar year. If you would like to play as a visitor, please check our calendar to make sure it is not a special event and contact our Secretary in the first instance.

Our venue is the Maison Française, North Oxford. Please aim to arrive at 7.15pm to be seated by 7.25pm for a 7.30pm start.

John Spencer

Sadly one of SBC's long-standing members, John Spencer, died over the August Bank Holiday weekend after a protracted illness. Our thoughts are with his wife, Angela, and family.  He was a true gentleman and will be greatly missed.

Wessex League 2017-18

This is a teams-of-eight competition for Oxfordshire clubs. We have three teams: our "A" and "B" teams are playing in Division 2, our "C" Team in Division 5.  Details of fixtures and results, as well as match reports will appear on the link on the lefthand side of this page.

The season started with the A & B teams playing each other on 20th September.  The match was very close, finishing with a small win to the A team, a result which left no one too disappointed.

The C Team played its first match on 28th September against Abingdon Alternative and won 15.79 : 4.21.

New Laws
New Laws

 

The EBU has brought in some law changes, which we are implementing from 1st September.  Many of the changes will make things fairer.

For those of you who are interested, the main changes apply to claims, insufficient bids and bids out of turn and are explained on the attached poster. Details were also in the August issue of the EBU magazine.
