New Laws

Wessex League 2018-19

This is a teams-of-eight competition for Oxfordshire clubs. We have three teams: our "A" team will be playing in Division 2, our "B" team in Division 3 and our "C" Team in Division 4.  Details of fixtures and results, as well as match reports will appear on the link on the lefthand side of this page.

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.

EBED Sim Pairs 3rd September

Very well done to Diane and Alison on a superb win with the huge score of 72.24%. Scored nationally this reduces slightly, but is still high enough to put them second out of 677 pairs. Robert and Trevor were second in the Club with 64.39% and 15th nationally, while Isobel and Judy were third in the Cub with 62.81% and 32nd nationally. Well done!
