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.
The EBU brought in a new Law Book in 2017. 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 2017 issue of the EBU magazine.
This is a teams-of-eight competition for Oxfordshire clubs. We have three teams: our "A" team will be playing in Division 2, our "B" team in Division 3 and our "C" Team in Division 4. Details of fixtures and results, as well as match reports will appear on the link on the lefthand side of this page.
If you would like to play for Summertown in the Wessex League please speak to Steven Bliss in the first instance.
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 7.20 for start of play at 7.30.
Very well done to Diane and Alison on a superb win with the huge score of 72.24%. Scored nationally this reduces slightly, but is still high enough to put them second out of 677 pairs. Robert and Trevor were second in the Club with 64.39% and 15th nationally, while Isobel and Judy were third in the Cub with 62.81% and 32nd nationally. Well done!

The Summer Ladder finished at the end of August, and it's very well done to Sandra & Krys who have jointly won the ladder: the average of their ten best scores was 63.25%. Cliff was next on 60.86% and Moira very close behind on 60.82%. To see the full results click on 'Competitions' on the left-hand side of the Club website's homepage.
To qualify for the ladder you have to be a Club Member and to have played at least ten times during the season (March to August).
