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.
This is a teams-of-eight competition for Oxfordshire clubs. We have two teams: our "A" team is in Division 2 and our "B" team in Division 3. For fixtures and results, as well as match reports click on the link on the lefthand side of this page.
Summertown Bridge Club plays duplicate bridge every Monday in the Maison Française, Norham Road, OX2 6SE. We pride ourselves on our reputation for friendliness, and welcome visitors and prospective new members, including those with relatively little experience of playing duplicate bridge. You can come along either with or without a partner, as our host system means you'll always get a game. We are EBU affiliated, use computer-dealt boards and wireless scoring, and award master points.
There is parking in Maison Française’s own car park and both metered and free parking on the nearby streets.
The club opens at about 7 pm, and players should arrive by 7.15 and be seated by 7.20 for start of play at 7.30.
A very successful Blue-Pointed Swiss Pairs was held on Sunday 23rd June, jointly with Oxford Bridge Club. There were 17 tables, and the winners were Judy & Isabel. Congratulations to them! Lorna & Alastair were second. Full results are here. Holly, playing with Freddie Beneat, won the second half ascenders' prize.
Many thanks to all involved in the organisation: primarily Sandra who masterminded the whole event, but also Lawrence for directing, Liza scoring, Claire catering, Judy for collecting the money and Krys for selling raffle tickets. Thank you also to Eileen & Anna who acted as our standby pair but in the end were not needed.
A grand total of £640 was raised for our two charities, Pancreatic Cancer UK and Safeline.
Update: corrections have been made to two scores on hands 35 and 36. The corrected results have been uploaded to the websites for both clubs and to the EBU. This hasn't affected the positions of the top 6 pairs, but has caused some changes to those lower down.
The missing Bridgemate has now been found.
Congratulations to Linda Edwards & Diane Coe on winning the Midsummer Pairs Competition on 17th June with the fine score of 64.41%. They will be
presented with the David Bygott trophy at the Club's AGM next April.
Very well done also to David Dobson & Brian Wright in second place with 63.64% and to Mary-ann & Tim Sheehy in third with 59.00%.
As some of you know, Oxfordshire fields three teams-of-eight in the Midland Counties League. A few of our Club's members represent the County in these teams. This year Oxfordshire's B team won their Division. The team then went on to play in the National Finals of the Inter-County Leagues on 16th June against all the other counties that had won in their various regional leagues. Oxfordshire emerged victorious for the second year running. Very well done to Mary-Ann Sheehy and Matthew Covill who were part of this winning team.
Congratulations to new junior member Zane Soonawalla, playing with his father, Zahir, on winning the Friendly Pairs cup in the Oxfordshire Congress.
Also to Mary-Ann Sheehy and Matthew Covill who were part of the team who came third in the Swiss Teams and Liza Furnival who was in the team finishing in sixth place out of the 48 competing.
