Summertown Bridge Club

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 Franšaise, North Oxford. Please aim to arrive at 7.15pm to be seated by 7.25pm for a 7.30pm start.
