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!
RealBridge on a Thursday evening

The date of the next event, combined with North Oxford Association, is Thursday 13th May (7 pm).  Please let Erica know on ericasheppard5@gmail.com if you'd like to play.  There will be a host.

Oxfordshire County Pairs winners!

Many congratulations to Linda Allen and Dave Dobson, who won the OBA County Pairs Final on Sunday 18th April with an excellent score of 61.94%, amidst tough competition.  Well done!

Mary-Ann Sheehy, playing with non-SBC member Christopher Whitehouse, came third.

Bridge Bulletins

It's May! It's supposed to be nice out there! What happened? I think March has come back again ...

Anyway, if the weather is keeping you indoors, here's something to keep you occupied for a while: our latest Bridge Bulletin, kindly written for us this week by James Bentley. Thank you, James - we do appreciate the time and thought you put into this, particularly as you haven't played the hands yourself.

Have a good week everyone, and maybe by this time next week we might even be thinking about turning off the central heating, who knows?

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.
