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.

News 2013
Bob Triggs
Bob Triggs died just before Christmas, perhaps a merciful release from his health problems.  He was a regular at SBC until earlier this year, and many of you will remember his determination to continue playing bridge despite ill health.  He was delighted to have managed to attend the grand opening in spring 2013 of Pembroke College's new building and bridge.  For some time before the event he proudly showed off his official invitation (he had been a student at Pembroke).  Afterwards he told us how he had chatted to the Duke of Kent on the day.

Sandra & Krys came second with 61.25% and Holly & Carol were third on 60.66%. Nationally the results are somewhat different, with Sara and Neil being boosted into second place (within the club).
