Ida Grönkvist lives in Stockholm, Sweden. Her parents taught her to play bridge when she was 11. A few months later, after she had been to her first junior tournament, she was absolutely hooked. She’s been playing on the national junior team since 2007, the women’s team since 2012 and recently also on the mixed team. Highlights include two gold medals in the U26 European Teams (2017 and 2019), one gold in the U26 Team World Championships (2018), a bronze and a gold in the Venice Cup (2017 and 2019), a silver in the European Women Teams (2018) and a gold in the European Mixed Teams (2019). 2020 will (sadly) be her last year as a junior.
