Free Taster Sessions

Four Free Taster Sessions in late August. For people new to bridge or who play socially and would like to develop their skills. One of the best sources of new recruits is through recommendation by people who already play. Please tell anyone you know who might be interested. We know it's a great game so please spread the word and get others to join us. For more details and to book click on the link by your preferred date in the right-hand column under Learn to Play Bridge.

Nominations for the Trustees

If you would be interested in putting your name forward for a position on the OBC Board of Trustees, including those where the current Trustees have indicated that they would be prepared to continue, and would like more information, please contact the Club Secretary at sec@oxfordbridgeclub.com.

In particular, we are looking for a new Social Secretary and a Premises Officer. There are also vacancies for two directly elected trustees.

You can also nominate someone else, but please get their permission first.

Please consider helping your club in any way you can. If you would rather not be a trustee but have some spare time on your hands, there are always tasks you can help out with. In particular, we need more help with organising refreshments at events. Don’t be shy in coming forward, you will be welcomed with open arms.

If you wish to nominate yourself or someone else, please use this form: OBC CIO Nomination Form 2024-2025

Please return nomination forms by 2nd July 2024.
