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.

Welcome to Summertown Bridge Club!
We regret that, following the Government's advice on 16 March, Summertown Bridge Club is cancelling bridge on Monday evenings for the time being.
We hope it will not be too long before we see you all again, and that you keep happy and healthy in the meantime.


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 10 - 25th May

Hello again friends,

I hope you're all keeping well and - dare we say it - getting more used to the new way of living. I'm happy to say that Krys and I are settling into some sort of routine, with shopping arriving reasonably regularly, and enough online bridge to keep us from getting too rusty. It does look though as if bridge clubs will remain physically shut for some time to come, so I'm delighted that so many of you have volunteered to contribute one of these weekly bulletins - the list of authors is still growing! We're keeping copies of all of them on our website, and I'm sure they will be fascinating to look back on in a few years' time.

This week's (click here) issue has been kindly contributed by Steven Bliss - and yes, he is the mystery poet! and he's also treated us to two very interesting hands. Do enjoy reading it, and as always, keep well and stay safe.
All the best

Online bridge
Oxford Bridge Club has online bridge sessions taking place on Friday mornings at 10 am and Tuesday evenings at 7.15 pm. The first session is on Friday 15th May.  Friday mornings will be slightly slower paced (16 boards rather than 18).

They wish to extend an invitation to those of our members who are not members of OBC, to join these sessions. 

OBC non-members will need to let them know their BBO names, EBU number etc at least 24 hours (preferably 2 days) before they wish to play, by filling in a form on the website.  Further details and a link to the form are here:  

OBC look forward to meeting  you at the new sessions, which will be master pointed and qualify for NGS.

Jane Matheson

We have just heard (21st April) the sad news that Jane Matheson died recently (the cause was unrelated to Coronavirus). She will be greatly missed.

Your committee will send condolences to her family on your behalf.
