🎤L’interview de Ben Norton

How did you get into bridge?

I used to play whist with my grandparents around the age of 11. I found that I really enjoyed playing with cards, especially tricky-taking games, and soon learnt to play bridge while at secondary school, mainly by playing a lot at school and at the local club, and by reading plenty of bridge books.

What’s your best bridge memory?

Probably being selected for the England open team for the European Championships of 2020 (which had to be delayed several times due to the pandemic) in partnership with Mike Bell.
