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.
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.
Congratulations to Sandra & Krys who won our heat of this Sim pairs on 9th April. Second were Lawrence Haines & Annabel Wade, and third were Aleks Lishkov & Diana Nettleton.
Those were the results in the club. The national results are slightly different, and can be viewed here:
