Junior bridge players from Sussex visited the House of Lords on Tuesday 24th November to play minibridge with the peers.
The youngsters acquitted themselves well against their more experienced opponents, and so as to not damage the winning streak the Lords' team is enjoying they didn't keep score.
Following the visit, two of the participants, Holly and Ruby, were interviewed on BBC Radio about the visit, and why they enjoy bridge. EBU General Manager, Barry Capal, also discussed the rising popularity of bridge, and the ongoing efforts to have it recognised as a sport. This interview was simultaneously broadcast on many local stations, and a link to the interview is available below.
