Welcome to the Summertown Bridge Club Website!

Summertown Bridge Club plays duplicate bridge every Monday in the Maison Française, Norham Road, OX2 6SE. We pride ourselves on our reputation for friendliness, and welcome visitors and prospective new members, including those with relatively little experience of playing duplicate bridge. You can come along either with or without a partner, as our host system means you'll always get a game. We are EBU affiliated, use computer-dealt boards and wireless scoring, and award master points.

There is plenty of parking both in Maison Française’s own car park and on the nearby streets. The club opens at about 7 pm, and players should arrive by 7.15 and be seated by 7.25 for start of play at 7.30.
