Summertown Bridge Club

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.

Blue-pointed Swiss Pairs, 17 July 2016

Our Blue Pointed Swiss Pairs event, held jointly with OBC, went very well. We had 14 tables and raised somewhere around £450 for our chosen charity, the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. Claire MacDonagh laid on a magnificent tea, including a variety of delicious cakes kindly donated by members, and everyone seemed to have thoroughly enjoyed the day.

The overall winners were David Patterson and Andrea Smith. Carol Benzie and Aleks Lishkov were second, Carol Wadsworth and Irene Holland won the Ascenders prize and Rosemary Dorey and Ursula Bowler won the Non-expert prize.

The raffle produced £240, so many thanks to all those members who generously donated some excellent prizes, as well as to everyone who supported the event by playing and buying raffle tickets. Besides Claire and the cake bakers, special thanks also to Rob Dixon, who directed the event free of charge, aided by John Rowe; Steph Bliss for managing the entries and fees; Cliff Pavelin who, together with Herman de Louw from OBC, dealt all the boards; and the host pair Joanna Donkin and Hazel Hobbs.

Oxford Junior Bridge Club

The Oxford Junior Bridge Club continues to thrive and all keen children are welcome to attend on a regular or occasional basis. All attendees will receive a very warm welcome and will be able to learn the game at their own pace, without the pressure of keeping up in a class.  Our dedicated volunteers are all DBS checked and have undergone a basic or thorough training in teaching bridge to juniors.

Although the atmosphere at the club is relaxed, some of our pupils are doing extremely well, in both junior and adult competitions, and one of our 11 year olds is a member of the England Under 15 bridge team!

DO encourage your children/grandchildren/great-grandchildren, or any other young people you know, to come along and learn this game, which we all enjoy so much.  The first visit is FREE OF CHARGE!

For further information about this, or any other aspect of junior bridge in Oxford, please contact Holly Kilpatrick:  juniorbridgeoxford@gmail.com
