Helen Erichsen

I started playing bridge at the ripe old age of 30 having been bribed into taking up the game by my father.

I have had some success playing in mixed tournaments with my husband Espen Erichsen. We won the European Mixed Teams in 2005 and were 4th in the same event in 2013. More recently we won the Norwegian Mixed Pairs in 2016.

I have been playing with Fiona Brown for just over a year and what a year it's been. I am delighted to be representing England with Fiona as my partner for the second year in a row. I was also thrilled to win the Northern Swiss Pairs with her in 2016.

When I'm not playing bridge I can generally be found in the garden.
