Welcome to Abbey Smith Bridge Club
Bridge club running as normal

Update - 20th January †thank you so much for all your kind messages. Charlotte is still at the John Radcliffe recovering and I am staying here with her. The physio involved will take a long time, we will certainly be at the JR for a good while yet. Thank you so much to all of you who are helping run and keep the bridge club going. I hope to see you all soon.†

Due to so many lovely offers of help, the bridge club will be running as normal!

as many of you have heard, my middle daughter was involved in a major car accident and is currently in hospital. I am really sorry that I wonít be at the club for a little while (not sure how long yet) but lots of offers of help has meant it can still be run as normal.†
I havenít necessarily had chance to message many of you, but I would like to say all your messages of support are greatly appreciated by the whole family. ❤️ I have been so touched.†

Abbey Smith!

I was taught Bridge by my Dad when I was 12 years old and have been playing ever since. I was fortunate to get the opportunity to enter junior trials when I was 16 and managed to be selected for the British Junior Squad and the English Under 20s team. In 1995 it was a privilege to be asked to partner Sandra Landy in the Beijing World Championships. At the time I was the youngest player to represent their country at non-junior level for any Nation. The highlight of my international experience was being a member of the British Ladies Team which won the European Championships in Malta in 1999. 

More recently my priorities have changed as I am married with 3 young daughters. However, I have started teaching bridge and love it!
