Abbey Smith!
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!
