Welcome to Summertown Bridge Club!
Bridge Bulletin

I'm really sorry to have to tell you there is no Bridge Bulletin this week :(

That's because there wasn't actually any bridge at Summertown this week. The Face to Face session that was scheduled for last night ended up being cancelled since, at the cut-off time, we hadn't reached the viable limit of 3 tables due to play. Obviously this was very disappointing for those who had booked in good time (including me!), and also for those who tried to book at the very last minute, only to find we had already cancelled because we didn't know they were coming.

We have one more F2F session to go in our two-month trial, on Monday 22nd August. We would love to see as many of you as possible on that day, but please, please, if you want to play, you MUST book before the cut-off time of 4 pm that day. Playing face-to-face requires a director, a scorer, a host, someone to open up the room and lock up afterwards, someone to bring the boards, someone to bring the milk for drinks... and if we haven't got enough definite bookings it is simply not worth asking these people to give up their time and use their fuel for a potentially fruitless journey. Setting a cut-off time allows us to contact them, and others who have already booked, early enough to prevent them from leaving home.

At the moment we haven't decided whether to continue running F2F sessions after the end of August. The committee is due to meet on the 23rd to discuss this. Attendance figures will obviously have a bearing, so if you would like us to go on with F2F, but you aren't able to come on that particular day, please do get in touch with Erica ( to let her know.

Next Monday we will be playing on BBO, so with any luck there will be a Bulletin for you again the following day. And please take care not to get fried in the meanwhile!

Trial return to face-to-face bridge

You will, I hope, be pleased to hear that Summertown BC is planning a partial return to face-to-face bridge on a trial basis.

Here is our plan:

Monday 11th July at 6.45 for 7.30.  A welcome back party with drinks & nibbles at 6.45 at Maison Francaise, followed by a normal evening's duplicate bridge at 7.30.  All welcome including non-members and free of charge!  There will be a host, so don't worry if you have no partner.

Monday 25th July, Monday 8th and Monday 22nd August (second and fourth Mondays in July and August when we have been playing RealBridge) at 7.30 pm - face-to-face duplicate bridge, and we hope to provide the usual refreshments: coffee/tea and biscuits.  For these evenings, you must register online and pay in advance.  Please register and come along even if you have no partner as there will be a host.  (If registering and paying online is a problem for you, please let Erica know).  Here is the link to the registration/payment page:

You must register before 4pm on the day you plan to play.  If we have fewer than three tables we will cancel, so please check your emails before setting off for the club.

The timing of the face-to-face bridge sessions will be 7.30 as before.  This is because Maison Francaise cannot allow us access before 7 pm during term time.

On the intervening Mondays we will continue to play online (on BBO).  To check what is happening on which day, look at the website.

We ask you to use common sense with regard to Covid.  Please do not attend if you have any signs of a cold or Covid.  Please bring your own supply of hand gel and wear a mask if you would prefer to.  We will space the tables out and provide good ventilation.

Please come along and support us and bring your friends!

Depending on the success of these four evenings and of course on any adverse change in the state of the pandemic and relevant Government advice, we will decide on the way forward for September onwards.

Erica and all the SBC Committee
