The Oxford Junior Bridge Club welcomes participants to its summer term sessions on Sundays at Summertown Church Hall. Click here to download details. You may also want to read the report on activities during the spring term by clicking here.
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 reminder that Monday July 22nd is the Summer Sim Pairs event at Summertown Bridge club and also one of our two annual charity events.
At the AGM we decided not to support the usual Children In Need sim pairs in November, but instead to support a local charity in the summer Sim Pairs. Our chosen charity this year is FLEXICARE (more information available at http://www.flexicare.org/ ). As this is a Sims event, the cost will be £6.50 for members and £8 for visitors. Maison Francaise is supporting us by waiving the room rent and all the table money for the evening will go to Flexicare.
In addition, we will be running a raffle at the beginning of the evening (with customary efficiency!) so that there will be only a short delay before bridge begins. We invite all members to support the raffle by buying tickets and contributing a prize. Some of you will be on holiday on the day itself but raffle tickets will be on sale from Monday 1 July and prizes can be handed over in advance.
Oxford Bridge Club is running a Charity Bridge Day in aid of Autism Family Support Oxfordshire starting at 10.30 on Sunday 4th August. Click for further details and to book online.
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.
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%.
