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 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.

Welcome to Summertown Bridge Club!
Online bridge party - Thursday 1st July
We have decided to hold a substitute for a summer party - a one-off event to be held on RealBridge on Thursday 1st July at 7pm, when you can meet and chat to all your friends - admittedly online, but we've all got used to that in the past year!  We hope it will be a very jolly occasion and that it will attract some of those whom we haven't seen for a while.  There will be no charge for the bridge.  Cliff Pavelin has kindly agreed to run the event for us.  The leading pair of club members will be awarded the Midsummer Pairs/Bygott Trophy, and former Club Chairman David Bygott has kindly offered a bottle or two to the trophy winners.
 
We'll send you details of how to register for the event in due course, but for now please put the date in your diary!

Bridge Bulletins

Another week of May has gone by and although thankfully it's got a little warmer, it's still disappointingly wet and blustery outside. Never mind - we can all be cheerful about the prospect of the next stage of easing the lockdown from next Monday :) Will there be anyone at all for bridge, I wonder, or will we all be busy seeing family and friends and eating in restaurants to celebrate?

While we're waiting impatiently, here's the latest in our series of Summertown bulletins, this time kindly written for us by Cliff Pavelin. I very much enjoyed reading this and I hope you do too.

Have a good week, stay safe, and please don't forget about bridge as life starts to open up again!

Finding a partner

We have been running a host system for those wishing to play online on a Monday evening.  This was set up as a trial and a small band of members volunteered to host.  For all sorts of reasons the committee has decided not to continue this.  There are, however, these alternatives:

1.  log on to BBO in good time, but after 5 pm, and go to the partnership desk.  Instructions are here.

2. send an email to sumbc@googlegroups.com saying you would like a partner on a specific date.

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.
