Morrie Marsh Novice Pairs Competition Thursday 16th May

The Morrie Marsh competition for novice pairs will take place on Thursday 16th May at 7.15pm at Oxford Bridge Club. This will be in place of the usual Supervised Play session. 

The competition is open to 'novice pairs' - players who have fewer than 200 masterpoints (below Club Master). Players who are members of Oxford Bridge Club and those who haven't previously won a club trophy are eligible to win the Morrie Marsh Trophy. Masterpoints will be awarded and the qualifying winners will have their names added to the club's Honours' board in addition to winning the trophy.

We'll play 14-18 boards and table money is £4. For full competition rules click here. To book tickets please click here.

Saturday Seminar with Charlie Bucknell 18th May

Competitive bidding and when to stop is a challenge for most of us. Charlie will guide us through the steps to consider when facing hands that are not straightforward, should we bid on or stop? For more information and to book click here.
