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 2019-20

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, results and match reports click on the link on the lefthand side of this page.  We are also participating in a daytime league.

Welcome to Summertown Bridge Club!
Online bridge at SBC

The Club is now 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.

Bulletins

Let’s keep in touch!

To try to keep in touch with one another, and perhaps keep our spirits up a little bit, the committee has decided that we’re going to take it in turns to send out a regular “Summertown Bulletin” to you all every Monday. The idea is that it will be related to bridge in some way.  The latest one is below.  To see older Bulletins click on the 'Bulletins' tab on the left.

Bulletin 21 - 10 August
Is it hot enough for you today?! Never mind, try to have a nice relaxing time, and then think about waking up your brain this evening with some online bridge :-)
Krys and I are now back home and hopefully we should be able to play without interruption. Apologies to everyone whose game was disrupted last Monday when we disappeared - we had no fewer than 3 brief power cuts in the space of about half an hour, cutting off the broadband every time.  We nearly gave up altogether, but managed to struggle on in the end. At least we've learnt something: as Erica says, if you lose your connection don't panic, a nice robot will step in automatically and substitute for you until you're able to get back online.
 
Apart from that, we didn't do very much while we were away, but it was so lovely just to have a change of scenery, and a cup of coffee made by someone else! An ice cream or two might have come into it somewhere as well ... and maybe a nice cold beer ...
 
Speaking of which, here's this week's bulletin, kindly written for us by (H)olly. Enjoy reading it, do join us online tonight if you can, and we'll be back in touch next Monday.
 
All the best as always, from me and all the committee -
Sandra
