Welcome to Central Yarnton Bridge Club
Announcement regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19)

17th March 2020 

 

Dear Member 

 

You will all have received Mo’s email, based on the announcement made by the Prime Minister and Health Advisors asking that, in an effort to reduce the impact of the Coronavirus, individuals’ cease social contact in groups. We are therefore stopping the Tuesday and Thursday morning Bridge Club meetings for the foreseeable future. 

 

Over the last couple of years we have been pleased with the way the Club has developed and from the feedback we have received we are aware that the Club has become an important social event for many of you, a viewpoint we share.  We regret having had to take this action but know that you will all be able to appreciate that we have no other option.    

 

We hope that you will all be able to practice your bridge play at home with family and close friends and return to the Club later in the year when we are given the ‘all clear’, more proficient than ever.  There are several applications that can be downloaded to enable you to play bridge on-line; we are aware that a number of members use ‘No Fear Bridge’ which you might find useful.  The EBU’s website also has helpful information regarding play during this difficult time. 

 

Our intention is to resume meetings when advised that it is safe to do so without placing any of our members at risk and will aim to inform you whenever we are in a position to do so.  In the meantime we hope to keep the Club’s website updated so please peruse on a regular basis. 

 

Take care of yourselves and keep well. 

 

Regards,

 

Jonathan Price

Central Yarnton Bridge Club

Let's Play Bridge

Central Yarnton Bridge Club (CYBC), near Oxford, is a sociable Bridge Club that aims to facilitate relaxed and friendly bridge sessions for people of varying ability.  The Club welcomes new members and provides opportunity for improvers and the more experienced player who want to learn more about bridge. New members and visitors are welcomed.

The Club meets on Tuesday and Thursday mornings in Yarnton Village Hall, The Paddocks, Yarnton, Oxfordshire, OX5 1TE.  The Hall is fully accessible with car parking provided on site.  

Coffee, tea and biscuits are available from 9.40am. We like to start play at 10am promptly, the sessions end at 12.00 - 12.15pm approximately.

We aim to play 18 boards of ‘Duplicate Bridge’ on a Tuesday morning but this is dependent on number of members attending.

Duplicate Bridge is facilitated on both Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Thursday morning sessions are less formal and played at a slower pace, making them ideal for newer players looking to learn to play bridge.

Game Options

Game optionsJust Play: 18 Boards Duplicate

Dependent on number of members attending 8 to 12 tables of Duplicate Bridge is facilitated on Tuesday and Thursday mornings.

 

 

Sitting Still Table

This group likes to play ‘Duplicate Bridge’ at its own pace, and to review the hands at the end of each board. Boards are computer dealt, and information on possible outcomes readily available for comparison!

The sitting still table group can also facilitate play for those returning to playing bridge or have sufficient grasp of the game to play but are not yet confident to play competitively. A great way for anyone looking

improve to learn bridge in more depth.

 

Tuition tableTuition Table


An ongoing programme of teaching to improve specific skills, aimed at both competent and the more experienced player takes place on a Tuesday morning. Sessions are led by Nigel Wilkes. The teaching table is managed alongside ‘playing tables’.

Tutors:

Nigel Wilkes & David Bygott

Cost   
Tea and coffee

Annual membership: £10

Bridge Play:  £3 payable per session

Charge includes coffee, tea and biscuits.                  

The Club relies on members volunteering to set up the sessions and help with clearing up afterwards.

Learning Bridge

The Club is committed to enabling as many people as possible to learn and enjoy playing bridge.  However, due to numbers now attending the Club on a Tuesday morning we are unable to offer a programme for absolute beginners. There are a small number of local tutors who organise courses.  Several members of the Club have attended courses led by Francis Pike, in Cassington, and we would recommend them to anyone interesting in learning bridge in the Oxford area.
