Anne learnt to play bridge in her teens in Edinburgh in the 1980s, where she played for the Scottish Junior team and won the Ladies teams, before moving south aged 22.
After qualifying as a Chartered Accountant Anne moved to London to be with her now husband, Neil Rosen, who has been a great supporter over the years.
Over the years Anne has had considerable success in Ladies events and other national competitions including in more recently winning the NICKO, and the Hubert Phillips three times. Internationally Anne has played Ladies representative bridge with Val Curran, Gillian Fawcett, Catherine Draper and Catherine Seale, and has played in 6 Lady Milnes, winning five times, and is looking forward to playing her seventh Lady Milne with Sarah. Anne was also part of the team that won the Mind Sport Games in Beijing in 2008.
Away from the table Anne’s life is constant balancing act between looking after (being a taxi service for) Nikki and Andy now 17 and 12, and working as a senior manager at the Bank of England. Relaxation often involves a large G&T, reading, or going out with the rugby mums!
