Bridge Education in Oxford

Oxford Bridge Club runs a comprehensive bridge education programme under the banner of Oxford Bridge School. Courses are available at all levels, from beginners to more experienced players. Further details are on their website.  

Wessex League 2020-21

This is a teams-of-eight competition for Oxfordshire clubs. This season it will be played online.  We have two teams.  If you wish to play for us please contact Howard Arnes (A-team) or Roger Heath-Brown (B-Team).  Fixtures, results and match reports will in due course appear when you click on the link on the lefthand side of this page.  

Welcome to Summertown Bridge Club!
Wessex League successes

Many congratulations to both our Wessex League teams this season.

The B-team played its last match on 7th April and won handsomely, putting them 19 VPS ahead of the next team, winning Division Four! 

The A-team also did very well in Division Two.  They finished second with only Menagerie B ahead of them.

A very successful season.  Well done everybody!  And many thanks to Howard and Roger, who captained the teams.

Bridge Bulletins

Here's this week's Bridge Bulletin to entertain you, kindly written for us this week for the first time by Cliff Pavelin. Thank you, Cliff - I think my partner and I managed between us to make three out of four of the mistakes you've picked out here, and were only saved from the fourth because we weren't holding those hands!

If anyone else would like to have a go at putting together a Bulletin once every few weeks, do let me know. You don't need to know how to insert the hand diagrams - I can do that part very easily; what we need is the commentary. You don't even have to have been playing in the session yourself, although that obviously does make it more personal.

Anyway, do have a good week, and until next time, keep safe as always -

Sandra

Online bridge at SBC

The Club is running on-line bridge sessions on Monday evenings at 7 pm.

Before your first Summertown session you MUST include your name, email address EBU number and BBO name in the table below and click on Send Message.   You will not be able to play in a Summertown event without doing this and you must do so at least 24 hours before you want to play for the first time.  This gives us time to notify the director which players are authorised to play in our events.  However, please note that you only need to fill this form in once.

At the start of each round please greet your opponents and give a brief resumé of your system, e.g  benji, 12-14 NT, 4 card majors, standard leads, McKenney discards.

The club requires you to put your real name on your BBO profile and reserves the right to block you from playing if you persist in not having your real name visible.  If you aren't willing to do this (for example, because you prefer to be anonymous when playing elsewhere on BBO), then we ask you to announce your real name (first and last name) to your opponents at the start of every round via the Chat manager.
