Welcome to Summertown Bridge Club!

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.

Teams on Monday 13th August
Many thanks to all who contributed to the success of our inaugural random teams event. Particular thanks to Steven for directing, and to Oxford Bridge Club in the form of Liza Furnival and John Fleming for sharing OBC’s knowledge of teams movements.

Handicap Pairs 30 July 2018

In spite of a handicap which deducted 5% from their score, their big win meant that John Deech & Matthew Covill still win a bottle of wine each with a handicap adjusted score of 64.27%. Clare Lim & Jane Armstrong weren't far behind on 63.85%, with Annabel Hichens & Sue Reynolds in third.  Well done to them all.
