Alexandra Birchall

I am 24 years old and started playing bridge when I attended lessons at the Manchester Bridge Club from the age of 11. I later studied Natural Sciences at Cambridge University, where I started playing bridge more regularly. Since then, I have played in the Channel Trophy twice for the girls’ team and once for the U26 team. I was also on the team which won the bronze medal at the 2017 European Junior Teams in Slovakia, playing with Yvonne Wiseman. We’re currently training hard to improve on that performance at the World Junior Teams in 2018. I usually play several times a week, mostly at the Young Chelsea Bridge Club in London, as well as in various knockouts, leagues and congresses.

I currently work as a Senior Product Manager for Danbury Mint, selling collectables and jewellery. In particular, I manage all of the digital marketing for the UK division with a focus on Facebook, which I really enjoy because the technology is changing rapidly.

Although most of my time is spent working or playing bridge, I also enjoy rock climbing and playing the piano.
