Nick Sandqvist

I’m 45 years old and have been playing Bridge since I was 15, having represented Sweden as a junior on several occasions.
I’m a professional bridge player, but I also run a business - The Green Indoor Mini-golf in Lewisham – and I’m the organizer of the successful TGR’s Super League.
I’m the co-writer of the Spectator bridge column with my partner Janet de Botton.
I have represented England in the Camrose on six occasions, winning twice.
I have won the Gold Cup three times, twice as part of the de Botton Bridge Team, with whom I’ve also won the National Swiss Teams three times, the Hubert Philips twice, Spring Fours twice and Crockfords Cup once.
With Artur Malinowski I won a silver medal in the European Pairs in 2007, and silver in the World Mind Sports Olympiad in Beijing in 2009.
Playing with Nevena Senior, I’ve won two bronze medals in the European Mixed teams, in 2007 and 2009.
