A message from Andrew
“Bridge has been my life and it has always been my ambition to find a way to share my passion for this game with others. I have been lucky to have been able to do that through my books, my newspaper articles in The Times and Country Life and the Andrew Robson Bridge Club in London. Now I am delighted to be able to bring my courses to Oxford as well”.
“I could not be happier that Jonathan Davis, with whom I have played on many occasions, and respect greatly as both a player and a writer, has agreed to take on the task of bringing my bridge methods to this great university city. He is a communicator by profession, has studied and used my methods with great success, particularly in the high stakes game in London, and plays the game the way it should be played, for fun and in the right sprit”.
