India Leeming

India was first taught how to play bridge by her grandfather at the age of 11 but began playing regularly at 18, when she joined the Cambridge University Bridge Club. This led to her joining the England Junior Squad in 2015 and making her international debut in the Junior European Pairs Championships in 2016. She has played for England several times since, including a very successful outing in the Junior World Championships in 2019, where she and her partner Hanna Tuus came a close 4th in the Pairs.

Since graduating in Linguistics from Cambridge, she went on to do a Master’s degree in Computational Linguistics at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden. She has now moved to London to live with Shahzaad Natt (her full-time life partner and occasional bridge partner) and is currently teaching and playing bridge full-time.

When not playing bridge, India likes to learn languages. She combines her interests by translating for a mobile bridge app, as well as doing more general translation work.
