John Deech Summer Pairs

John has very kindly agreed to continue to finance 4th Wednesday evenings at the club, so over the summer we will continue to provide free drinks and nibbles on the 4th Wednesdays of June, July and August. 

In addition there will be the following cash prizes: 

1. £20 for the winning pair

2. £10 for the highest-placed pair with an NGS of less than 10. 

There won't be a ladder. 

John Deech Challenge Pairs

The Trustees believe that it is vital for members to return to playing face-to-face at 147 Banbury Road. Otherwise, there is a real danger that the club's ownership of its premises will become unviable.  We are therefore continuing to encourage players to return to face-to-face bridge.  To that end, John Deech is very kindly continuing to finance his pairs tournament for both experienced and less experienced players. 

  • the tournament will be played over nine months on the fourth Wednesday evening of each month commencing 27 September (excluding the last Wednesday of December). That makes a total of eight sessions 
  • free refreshments (wine, beer, soft drinks and nibbles) will be provided throughout each session both at the beginning, during the interval, and at the end
  • there will be £50 cash prizes each month - £20 to the winners, £10 to the runners-up and £20 to the highest ranking pair with an NGS of under 10
  • there will be a ladder encompassing the results from all eight sessions, with only the best five results counting towards the final total
  • the winner of the ladder will received the John Deech Challenge Trophy
  • further cash prizes will be awarded at the AGM as follows: ladder winner £125; runner-up £75; and the highest placed player with an NGS* of under 10 £100.

The trustees aim is to achieve a minimum number of 10 tables for each session.  We therefore encourage all of you to support this relatively new tournament which will combine bridge and a chance to meet your fellow members face-to-face  as we used to before the pandemic. 

Table money: £4.00 per player, payable on arrival, card payments only.

Host: all sessions are hosted so that you may attend even if you don't have a partner. 

Note that you don't need to attend every session to take part in this competition - you may attend as many or as few of the sessions as you wish/can manage. If you'd like to compete for the trophy and the end-of-year prizes, then you'll need to attend at least 5 out of the 8 sessions, but the individual session prizes are open to anyone who comes along to play. 

*NGS as measured on 1st October 2023. 

Non-members

Non-members are very welcome to play in these sessions, and are eligible to win the cash prizes awarded on the night. However non-members are not eligible to win the trophy or cash prizes awarded at the end of the tournament.
