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 mornings in Yarnton Village Hall, The Paddocks, Yarnton, Oxfordshire, OX5 1TE and online on Thursdays. 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 (Hall) and Thursday mornings (online).
Just Play: 18 Boards Duplicate
Dependent on number of members attending 8 to 12 tables of Duplicate Bridge is facilitated on Tuesday mornings. 20 boards of duplicate are played in our online game played on Real Bridge
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 to improve or to learn bridge in more depth.
12 Board Duplicate.
For players wanting a gentler game or gaining confidence to move on to the more competitive 18 Board game. Simply put your hand up and you will be assisted with your bidding or declarer play by an experienced player.
All the above are played in the hall alongside each other.
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.
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.
