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.

 
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.

AGM & Bridge Monday 24 April

We are holding our AGM at 7pm on Monday 24 April. Our usual full session of bridge will follow immediately afterwards at approximately 7.30.

Fame for local Junior Bridge

The success of Oxfordshire's Junior Bridge teaching has reached the ears of Andrew Robson.  On 17th April it was mentioned in his bridge column in The Times!  To see the article click here.

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!
