Bridge Education in Oxford

Oxford Bridge Club runs a comprehensive bridge education programme under the banner of Oxford Bridge School. Courses are available at all levels, from beginners to more experienced players. Further details are on their website.  

Henley Cafe Bridge

This event on 25th April 2017 is now FULLY BOOKED.  However, for details click here.

 

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.

EBU System Upgrade

Please note that the EBU is introducing a new Membership Management system beginning on March 17th, so results, bookings, NGS, membership updates, etc, will not be available for some days or a week until the system transfer is complete. For more details, please see the EBU website.

Stratified Sim Pairs 13 March 2017

Nobody managed to achieve a result within the club that broke the 60% barrier, so well done to Christina & Tom on emerging top of the pack with just under that mark. Bridget & John Spencer did well to finish second with 59.09% and Moira & Cliff third on 58.52%.

As is quite commonly the case, the positions are somewhat different when performances are compared against many other pairs nationally. Currently Sandra & partner have top spot in the club with around 61%, Bridget & John second of the club pairs with about 59%, and Christina & Tom third on approximately 56.5%. These percentages will change as more clubs upload their scores.

Our club's National Scores are at

This evening's event was stratified. The explanation for the stratification and award of Master Points is given at the beginning of the commentary.

Winter Ladder 2016-17

The Winter Ladder has just finished and it's very well done to Sandra & Krys who have jointly won the ladder: the average of their ten best scores was an impressive 63.45%.   Robert was third on 60.64% and the Sheppards joint fourth on 60.36%.  To see the full results click on 'Competitions' on the left-hand side of the Club website's homepage.  You have to be a Club Member and to have played at least ten times during the season for your result to feature on the list.

The Committee has made the decision to discontinue the Ascenders' Competition, since it seems that it is no longer generally being won by improving players, as was the original intention when it was first introduced.  We are still keen to recognise and encourage better play at all levels. We run handicap events several times a year and at each AGM the Chairman's Cup is presented to the most improved player (in the eyes of the Committee).  We therefore hope that improving players feel they are still being catered for!

Harwell Cup success

On 12th February Sandra & Krys, playing with two non-members, won the OBA's Harwell Cup for the county multiple teams-of-four championship.  For the full results click here.
