Bridge Champ

WARSAW, POLAND – Blythewood’s Joyce Martin Hill competed last week in the Palace Cup International Bridge Tournament in Warsaw, Poland. The team, made up of Hill and six others from around the world, took home a $1,000 prize.

Hill began playing bridge at age 12 with her parents, who belonged to two bridge clubs. On a World Cruise in 2003, she took up duplicate bridge. “After that, I was hooked,” Hill said. She currently has over 10,000 points, which puts her in the top .02% of competitive players. She is a Grand Life Master, has four national titles and a second place, won in Hawaii last November.
