Bronze Bridge Medal in European Youth Team Championships

U16 Bridge TeamOver the summer holidays, Kimberley (current UV pupil), represented England in the U16 bridge team, competing in the 27th European Youth Team Championships in Stokke, Norway. 

Eighteen teams battled over four days of intense competition. Going into the final day, England were in 4th position – but they secured some great wins in their final four matches to finish in 3rd and win the Bronze medal. Many congratulations to Kimberley and the team!
