Schools Challenge March 2018

24 teams of four from all over the country competed in this event and local representation was provided by 3 teams from Oxfordshire and 2 from Reading in Berkshire. The Reading A team qualified from the pool into the knock out, but were unfortunate to come fourth. The local success came from the Reading B team consisting of Euan Sarson, David Fryer, Will Clennell and Matthew Wadsworth who won the Schools Plate. They come second of the remaining 20 teams, only being beaten by a mixed but experienced team of international players. The three teams from Oxfordshire, mainly based around its junior bridge club, came respectable 6th, 10th and 11th in the plate, so can feel pleased with themselves, as many will be at school for some time yet.
