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!
Nine High Games at OBA

Every Thursday, OBA runs an online event for players of NGS grade 9 and below, where you can come along and have an enjoyable game with other players who are not too expert.  A big attraction is that there's always a commentary on the hands for all participants, written by one of the County's top players.  If you'd like to play, just click here to fill in the form for you and your partner, and you'll be sent instructions.

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.

FORM
Finding a partner

Moira Pavelin has kindly offered to try match people up, so if you are looking for a partner in either the short term or more permanently, do let her know.

Alternatively members can send a message to sumbc@yahoogroups.com, advertising for a partner.

Or you can register on the BBO partnership desk after 5 on a Monday evening.  Click here for instructions.

Bridge Bulletins

On a mild but gloomy November Tuesday, here's something to brighten you up: the third in our new series of weekly Bridge Bulletins, looking at some of the hands played in this week's online session, where we had a record turnout of 11 tables . This time Trevor Dawn has given us an excellent discussion of what might have gone through your mind when you were trying to choose an opening lead on some of the hands - thank you, Trevor!  Click here to read his bulletin.
 
Have a good week, stay warm (it's going to be chilly by the end of the week, apparently), and of course, stay safe -
All the best,
Sandra
