Surfers Paradise Bridge Club

I discovered Bridge in Bangkok, Thailand through the Australian and NZ Women’s Group in 1998 when the family was on assignment there. 
I am a teacher by profession so it was a natural progression for me when we retired here to the Gold Coast. 
The enjoyment that Bridge offers me is the constant challenge to improve and better my game. On the teaching front, I love imparting knowledge and seeing the development of my students – those lightbulb moments when something really clicks. 
People outside of my family probably don’t know that I was a very competitive equestrian through my teenage years both in Showjumping, Eventing and Dressage.
