Special Club Events background

Hans Eisler Pairs

Played in honour of Hans Eisler who founded our club in June 1968 in a classroom at Pennant Hills High where he was Head of Mathematics. Hans organised bridge and was our Director for 22 years, in the initial years covering much of the costs himself. Pleasant and courteous at the table, Hans loved and was loved by everyone.

A & D Munro Pairs

Played in honour of sisters Adell and Doris Munro. Del, a keen bridge player, was a fellow founder of our club in 1968. Doris never played bridge but supported her sister by collecting the money and making tea. Del Munro continued to play and support the club for more than 20 years.
