A youth bridge day. Bring or abandon your children or grandchildren. Learn and play in the morning, packed lunch and run a round, followed by afternoon competition. The more experienced children may be competing in a heat of the Oxford Times Cup, but you can choose to partner them if they will let you! From 10.30-4.30 on Sunday March 3rd at Berrick and Roke Village Hall. Call Joan Bennett 01491 579795 if you have any queries.
The Wallingford Duplicate Bridge Club is a thriving and very active club with over 300 members, based at Berrick and Roke Village Hall, OX10 6JJ.
We are delighted to welcome new members – please click here for more information.
Players come from all over Oxfordshire including Wallingford, Oxford, Thame, Henley, Abingdon, Benson and surrounding villages. We have playing sessions to suit players of all abilities. Our Bridge Programme can be found in the left hand menu. Visitors are very welcome at all sessions.
If you are interested in learning how to play bridge, details of bridge classes can be found in the menu. We look forward to welcoming you at the Club.
Please be seated 10 minutes before the session starts.
Due to the increased numbers of players coming on a Thursday afternoon, Roy has decided to start the session 15 minutes earlier so that it can still finish on time. Therefore from Thursday 21 February, the Thursday afternoon session will begin at 1.45 p.m. rather than 2 p.m. This will allow time for 20 boards to be played, have a tea break, and finish by 4.30 p.m.
This year, Wallingford Bridge Club celebrates its 50th anniversary. We shall be holding an additional Swiss Pairs event this year, on Sunday, 30th June 2019, 11am for a 11:30 start. There will be 24 boards, with a break after 12 boards for a celebratory lunch. Price: £6 per person for the bridge play, lunch, and refreshments.
All members are encouraged to attend from all sessions, but we can only accommodate the first 46 pairs who enter. If a lot more members would like to attend, we will organise a second event later in the Summer. It will not just be the top players on the day who will be rewarded with prizes.

On Sunday March 31st, one of our members, John Wragg, will be doing a skydive in aid of Helen and Douglas House hospice in Oxford. As I am sure many of you know, this charity does wonderful work with terminally ill children and young adults and supports them and their families during an incredibly difficult time. The skydive will be from 13000ft with 8000ft free fall above Hinton-in-the-Hedges, near Brackley.
John has a website where you can find more details and donate to this very worthy cause if you so wish www.justgiving.com/John-Wragg1
John will also be putting a donation form on the club notice board if anyone would like to make a donation off-line. Your support would be very gratefully received. Thank you.
Please click for more information on this event at Charvil, RG10 9TR.
