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.

Stuart Scott

We were sad to hear of the death early this year of Stuart Scott, at one time a regular attendee on a Monday evening.  Our condolences go to his family.

Master Pairs

A heat of the EBU Masters Pairs 2019 competition is being held at Oxford Bridge Club on Sunday 24 February.  This is a national two-session one-day green-pointed event held simultaneously at several different venues across the country, which gives players an unusual chance to earn green points in their local area, and in the absence of higher ranked players.

It is open to all players below the rank of Regional Master.  Further details can be found on the EBU website [click here].

Play starts at 11am, and is expected to finish at about 6pm. The entry fee is £12.00 per player. 

Please book and pay for your place in advance.  Further details and online booking can be found by clicking here.

Christmas Party

A fun time seemed to be had by all at this year's Xmas Party on 10th December.  Such fun, in fact, that the bridge which followed was characterised by a record number of director calls, mis-scorings and failures to arrowswitch!

Many thanks to Holly & Bridget for organising the food, to Steph and Steven for providing some fine wine (and on winning the bridge), to Ruth for directing on such a busy evening, Krys for scoring and correcting all the mis-scorings, and to Moira for raising money for the homeless.

Thanks to everyone who gave generously to “Homeless Oxfordshire”: we raised £684.70. “Homeless Oxfordshire” is a large organisation which is based in O’Hanlon House in Luther Street, next to the medical centre that specializes in care for the homeless.  O’Hanlon house itself has 56 beds but also has sit-up places in severe weather and provides a day service for another 80 clients. The charity is also responsible for a range of special ‘move-on’ projects helping certain groups of clients re-establish themselves in the community.

Moira reminds us that although we have collected at Christmas, this is not just a Christmas charity.  It operates all year round, providing moral and physical support to its clients, through a range of specialist services.
