A Household with two Gold Grand Masters


Meet Christchurch's latest Gold Grand Master, Jane Skipper. Jane and her husband John have been huge contributors to the Christchurch Bridge Club for many many years. For Jane, away from the table, this means being one of the club’s main and most successful bridge teachers.

Today, though, we celebrate the success of Jane at the bridge table where she has been one of our top players, for a while in Women’s Bridge and more recently in partnership with John in the Mixed category.

That’s two Gold Grandmasters in the same household, a really neat achievement. There’s not many partnerships playing in New Zealand who can claim that feat.
