Junior Bridge

Oxford Junior Bridge lessons started again in September.  For more information please click here.

New Laws

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 issue of the EBU magazine.

 
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.

Children in Need
Children in Need

Well done everybody!  We raised £1,005 for Children in Need, a magnificent effort for a small club which only meets on one evening a week.  Here is a link to all the donations from bridge clubs.  Thanks go to Maison Francaise for waiving the room rent for the evening, Christina for selling her honey, and Krys and Neil for selling raffle tickets (picture of raffle prizes above!).  And thanks to all of you for being so generous.  If you’d like to see the history of our donations over the past 15 years, click on Club History on the left of this page.

Anna Gudge of ECats says "I just don't know how you do it - you come up trumps year on year, thank you so so much.  You will thank all your lovely members for us won't you ? they are just so generous and we really do appreciate it.  Give them all big hugs from us please!”

Many congratulations to Alison & Robert who won our heat of the CiN sim pairs with a score of 58.33%.  Ruth & Judy were second on 57.95%, and Lawrence & Annabel were third on 56.59%.

For the national results see here.  For the commentary see here.

25 years old!
25 years old!

Summertown Bridge Club is 25 years old!

To mark this special occasion we will be having a celebration party at Maison Francaise on Monday 18th December starting at 6.30 p.m.  Light buffet, drinks, lots of fun and reminiscences!

This will be followed (of course) by 'normal' duplicate bridge.  The pair (of members) who win will receive a 25th Anniversary Trophy, as will the pair of members that win on handicap.  The total cost, including refreshments and bridge will be £6.00.

If you have a nice Summertown Bridge Club anecdote you would like to share, please email it to Holly as soon as possible.

For catering purposes Holly would appreciate numbers, although this is not essential.
