Minister endorses health and wellbeing benefits of bridge

Sports minister, Tracey Crouch MP, has today spoken of the benefits of playing bridge.

When asked by fellow MP Bob Blackman for an update regarding the status of bridge, and other mind sports, as sports, she replied “I recognise that many of these games are enjoyed by many people and that the mental agility required in this activity can help with conditions and bring many health and wellbeing benefits". She added that approaches for funding support could therefore be made to the departments of education or health.
