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!
Winter Ladder Results

The Winter Ladder has just finished and it's very well done to Irene & Mike who have jointly won the ladder: the average of their ten best scores was 60.78%.  Sandra & Krys were joint third with 59.2%.  Howard & Isabel were close behind with 59.04%.

To qualify for the ladder you have to be a Club Member and to have played at least ten times during the season (September to February).

Annual Master Point Lists

The EBU has recently published its annual Master Point reports. These include all kinds of lists but in the actual 2020 MP competitions many Club members have done well.  Click here to see a summary.

Charity Bridge

A charity bridge afternoon is being held on Monday 22 March at 2pm in aid of Flexicare, an Oxfordshire-based charity that supports families with disabled children. 

The session will be played on RealBridge, and is open to all. Entries should go directly via Flexicare. Click here for further details

Bridge Bulletins

This week's Bulletin (click here) has kindly been written for us again by James Bentley, who's picked out some of the more interesting hands from Monday night's session to illustrate why those old bridge sayings can't always be relied on to get you the best result. Do enjoy reading it :)

And I hope you're also enjoying the milder weather, the first signs of spring (baby daffodils, anyone?), and the promise of a return to something like normal life some time in early summer. Let's all keep all our fingers and toes crossed!

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.

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 (moirapavelin@gmail.com).
