Andrew Robson OBE is England’s best known bridge player/teacher/writer. In 1995, he founded the highly successful Andrew Robson Bridge Club in South West London. He has written all the courses which many tens of thousands have taken at the Club over the years and still teaches several weekends a year at the Club. Andrew has written the daily Bridge column for The Times for over 20 years. He has written weekly for Country Life for 30 years and weekly for Money Week for nearly 20 years. He also writes monthly for The Oldie. Andrew produces acclaimed daily instruction “BridgeCast” videos for all levels of players (go to andrewrobsonbridgecast.com) and has seen a meteoric rise in many of his subscribers.
Andrew has put his training as a schoolteacher to good use by heading hundreds of instructional seminars around the UK, many in aid of charity. He was appointed Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in the 2013 New Year Honours for services to bridge and charity. Later the same year he was the joint winner of Personality of the Year at the International Bridge Press Association's annual awards. In 2018 he was a winner of the English Bridge Union's Diamond Award, introduced to recognise players "in recognition of excellence and success over a sustained period for England's international teams”.
Andrew has represented England for some 30 years. His many competitive successes include winning the World Youth Team Championships, the European Championships, and the Gold Cup on no fewer than eight occasions. Andrew has written over 20 books on the game he loves, including Tips for Intermediates, the Next Level, Top Tens and, most recently, Strong and Fives (although he mainly teaches Acol).
Andrew is married, with two daughters, and lives in London. When not bridging, Andrew loves long walks and bike rides.
