Congratulations!!
Congratulations!!

So proud of both Sarah Gregory and Dave Basham for winning the Oxfordshire Blue Pointed event held at Abingdon on Sunday 2nd December. This is the first Blue Pointed event that either of them have entered so to come first is an excellent achievement......and not a bad advert for the club or my teaching !! So proud of them both laugh

Welcome to Abbey Smith Bridge Club
Beginner Lessons - New Courses

New Beginner course starting Monday 16th September at Greenacre Hall (Next to Drayton Parslow Sports and Social Club). Lessons are from 7.45pm to 9.15pm♠   ♣ 

If you would like to book on the please complete the form below.

Beginner lessons are £12.50 per person and payable in 5 week slots. The full beginner course is 15 weeks, however, you can book on the first 5 to see how you like it.....I'm sure you will as most people do. All lessons are relaxed and friendly and not at all intimidating. As a teacher I do understand that it can be quite daunting to start something new as an adult and the course is set up to help everyone enjoy starting a new interest. The club is run so that it is easy to play and practice as a beginner. 

Bridge is a fantastic game in so many ways, I have been thrilled with how popular it has become in this area!

Abbey Smith!
Abbey Smith!

I was taught Bridge by my Dad when I was 12 years old and have been playing ever since. I was fortunate to get the opportunity to enter junior trials when I was 16 and managed to be selected for the British Junior Squad and the English Under 20s team. In 1995 it was a privilege to be asked to partner Sandra Landy in the Beijing World Championships. At the time I was the youngest player to represent their country at non-junior level for any Nation. The highlight of my international experience was being a member of the British Ladies Team which won the European Championships in Malta in 1999. 

More recently my priorities have changed as I am married with 3 young daughters. However, I have started teaching bridge and love it!
