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 4.  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.

Congratulations to Peter Finbow and Alison who won the Binyon Cup on Monday 21st October with a magnificent 73.48%!  Sandra and Krys were second, Linda Edwards and Diane third.  The Cup will be presented at the next AGM, but the winners received a bottle of wine each on the evening.

Nancy and Tim Binyon, mother and son, were two loyal members of the club in its early years.

Double congratulations
