Laura Covill

I was born in 1995 in Oxford, where (by design) my parents still live a few metres from the Oxford Bridge Club.

I was first selected for the England U26 girls’ team in December 2013, ostensibly because I can tell the difference between spades and clubs (which according to Michael Byrne is all you need to be able to do before they’ll let you play bridge for England) but more likely for plying the entire U20s squad with cake. Since then I have played in 4 channel trophies for the girls' team, won the peggy bayer and played the 2015 european championships with the U20 team. I have partnered Alex Birchall, Stephen Kennedy and Sean Mekie; my current victim is recently anglicised Olivia Bailey. In my spare time I’m studying for a degree in Biochemistry at King’s College London, and spending all my student loan on tea and bridge.
