Harry Madden

I'm 18 years old and come from Derby, however I currently attend Warwick University to study Mathematics. I come from a bridge playing family - both my parents and older sister also play.

I was part of the Under 16 team at the 2015 European Championships. World Youth Team Championships in 2016 partnering Oscar Selby.

At the 2016 European Youth Pairs Championship I finished 5th with Oscar Selby in the Under 16 event - narrowly missing out on a medal by 0.25%.

Away from international bridge, I play regularly in congresses and also in Derbyshire and Warwickshire whilst I’m at uni.

In 2018, I played in the under 21 team at the World Championships in China where I partnered Kripa Panchagnula. Unfortunately, the team under-performed that year and failed to qualify for the knock out stages.
In 2019, we bounced back from the disappointment of China and partnering Oscar Selby, we were part of the under 21 team that won a bronze medal at the European Championships in Norway. I would say this is my proudest achievement in my bridge career.

Later that year, we were part of the under 21 team that won the Channel Trophy in Utrecht.

I am also well recognised by those who have played with or against me for my ability to read opponents and guess the location of a missing queen.

Outside of bridge, I play cricket, tennis, football and a bit of Badminton. And if you’re reading this then I’ll probably beat you at any sport you can name. I'm also a keen Leeds United supporter and season ticket holder.
