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’.

Tea and coffee

Annual membership: £10

Bridge Play:  £3 payable per session

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.
