Wessex League 2019-20

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.  Speak to Howard Arnes (A-Team) or Roger Heath-Brown (B-team) if you would like to play for Summertown.  For fixtures, results and match reports click on the link on the lefthand side of this page.  We are also participating in a daytime league: speak to Neil Whiting if you are interested in playing in this.

Welcome to Summertown Bridge Club!

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.

Christmas Party!
Christmas Party!

This year our Christmas party will be held on Monday 9th December at Maison Francaise.

At 6.30p.m. we will be serving wine, soft drinks and a light buffet, to suit most tastes.  NORMAL DUPLICATE BRIDGE, WITH MASTER POINTS will take place, as usual, starting at the slightly earlier time of 7.20 p.m.  Half way through the duplicate session, we will have a short break for coffee & cakes.

This is the only evening of the year when we are unable to welcome visitors. There will be no charge to our members for this Christmas fare but the committee hope that you might donate in lieu to “Oxford Homeless Pathways.” Collection tubs will be on the table.

Table money will be the usual amount.

For catering purposes please reply to Holly.
