India Natt

India first learned how to play bridge at the age of 11, when her grandmother married a bridge player who was keen to teach them both. However, she only 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 played for England several times as a junior, 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 Lisbon, where she lives with her husband (and occasional bridge partner), Shahzaad Natt, and their baby son, who hasn’t started learning bridge yet! She teaches and plays bridge full-time, spreading her passion for the game to students all over the globe. 

When not playing bridge, India likes to learn languages (her current project being Portuguese) and delve into English grammar. She combines her interests by translating and editing bridge content. To unwind when not working, she also loves to travel, crochet and read.
