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.

Welcome to Summertown Bridge Club!
We regret that, following the Government's advice on 16 March, Summertown Bridge Club is cancelling bridge on Monday evenings for the time being.
We hope it will not be too long before we see you all again, and that you keep happy and healthy in the meantime.


Let’s keep in touch!

To try to keep in touch with one another, and perhaps keep our spirits up a little bit, the committee has decided that we’re going to take it in turns to send out a regular “Summertown Bulletin” to you all every Monday. The idea is that it will be related to bridge in some way.  The latest one is below.  To see older Bulletins click on the 'Bulletins' tab on the left.

Bulletin 15 - 29 June

Yes, it's Monday evening again, so here's another bulletin - this time kindly written for us by Jane Darke, who's been using the lockdown to explore some lovely walks in North Oxford. Even if you're not in a position to follow her footsteps, do enjoy her excellent descriptions, and marvel at the variety of grasses she's managed to find along the way!

Although the economy is now gradually opening up again, it seems very unlikely that face-to-face bridge will return in the near future (if anyone's looked at the risk assessment on the EBU website, you'll realise why!). With this in mind, as you'll have seen, the committee is exploring the possibility of setting up our own online duplicate sessions. However, we still plan to go on sending out these weekly bulletins to keep you all in touch.

I have one more waiting in the wings, from Mary Bennett, and then we're due to start again going down the list of committee members - unless there's anyone else out there who would like to contribute and hasn't yet done so? If so, do let me know! I'll also be writing to everyone who has already sent one in, to see if they'd be willing to do another.

Have a good week everyone, and as always, stay safe -

All the best
