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" and "B" teams are playing in Division 2, our "C" Team in Division 5. Details of fixtures and results, as well as match reports are on the link on the lefthand side of this page.
In the 2017-18 season the A team finished third in Division 2. The B Team finished seventh in Division 2, and the C Team finished third in Division 5.
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.

The Cafe Bridge event in Abingdon, on Thursday 18th October 2018, will start at 10.30am and finish soon after 4pm. There are five venues and the one you visit at lunchtime will be where you stop and eat a great two-course lunch. Additionally, tea/coffee + biscuits are served on arrival and tea/coffee + home-made cakes at the end.
This is a social bridge event, for all standards, and no rankings or master points will be involved, but there will be lots of prizes, for 'improvers' as well as the best. The cost will be £70 per pair and the surplus will go to Flexicare, an Oxfordshire charity which provides care for disabled children. Booking and more info from Kevin Carter email@example.com.
Congratulations to the following members, promoted in the June round of the EBU’s Master Point Promotions. Well done both!
