The Wessex League season has now finished for the Summertown teams, although other clubs still have some matches to play.

Congratulations to our A team who has finished a very respectable 4th out of 8 teams in Division 2; our B Team has finished 7th out of 8 in Division 3 and regrettably, will be demoted, and our C Team did very well indeed to finish 5th out of 8 teams, in  Division 5.

Match reports and links to the league tables are available on the Wessex League page (see left-hand menu for a link). 

British Spring Sim Pairs, 4th April 2016

Congratulations to Alison Withers-Green and Diane Coe, who came top in the club with 61.35% (the only score over 60%) and are currently lying 40th nationally with a score of just under 61%.

Second in the club were Bridget Watson and John Spencer on 58.75%, closely followed by Viv Stevenson and Howard Arnes on 58.44%. Nationally the relative positions are the same, with very slightly lower percentage scores.

Oxford Junior Bridge Club

The Oxford Junior Bridge Club continues to thrive and all keen children are welcome to attend on a regular or occasional basis. All attendees will receive a very warm welcome and will be able to learn the game at their own pace, without the pressure of keeping up in a class.  Our dedicated volunteers are all DBS checked and have undergone a basic or thorough training in teaching bridge to juniors.

Although the atmosphere at the club is relaxed, some of our pupils are doing extremely well, in both junior and adult competitions, and one of our 11 year olds is a member of the England Under 15 bridge team!

DO encourage your children/grandchildren/great-grandchildren, or any other young people you know, to come along and learn this game, which we all enjoy so much.  The first visit is FREE OF CHARGE!

For further information about this, or any other aspect of junior bridge in Oxford, please contact Holly Kilpatrick:  juniorbridgeoxford@gmail.com
