Andy Hung first started playing bridge when he was 17 during his lunch breaks in high school! He soon joined the QLD Youth Program as well as the ABF Youth Club, and within a year or two he competed in the Australian National (Youth) Championships for QLD at a national level, and represented Australia in the Schools Team at an international level.
Andy later moved to Melbourne as he completed his Bachelors in Aerospace Engineering, but due to the competitiveness in this field, Andy had started to teach bridge in Brisbane from 2010.
In his bridge teaching career, Andy has taught many players at all levels ranging from absolute beginners, all the way up to national and international representatives. He is regarded as one of the most caring and understanding teachers, as he makes every effort to make sure all of his students understand the concepts that he’s teaching, no matter how simple or difficult it may be.
Andy’s teaching skills and experience was recently recognised by the Australian Bridge Federation in 2016 when he was made an ABF Honorary Teaching Fellow.
Andy has also been running successful Bridge Holidays (in and outside of Australia) since 2015. Popular destinations such as the Hunter Valley, Noosa, and St. Petersburg in Russia, Andy’s Bridge Holidays have a nice balance between the holiday aspect, and the bridge activities!
Besides teaching bridge, Andy has been the editor of the Australian Youth Bridge Bulletin since 2012, and he will take over the editor role of the Gold Coast Congress in 2019.
As a player, Andy has won several State and National titles, and most recently the Australian Open Team Trials (as he will be competing in the World Championships in 2019). He has started to compete in the US Nationals as a way to practice for the World Championships!
