Bridge With The Hacketts

Paul Hackett and twin sons, Jason and Justin, together with Justin’s wife Barbara are members of a remarkable family. Between them they have won, or been in the medals, in most of the World Championships.

Their major successes include silver medals in the European Pairs and Teams, the Junior World Championship and silver in the Mind Sports in Beijing.  Paul won the world senior championship for the D'Orsi Bowl in 2009 and continued the following year to win the World Senior Championship in Philadelphia.  Add to that Barbara’s two gold, three silver and two bronze medals in European and World Championships and you get a taste of their many achievements.

Their tally of over 100 wins include major tournaments in such diverse venues as Japan, China, Trinidad, Argentina, Peru, Barbados, Australia, Morocco, virtually all of Europe and many other countries.

Paul has become involved as President of the Commonwealth Nations Bridge Championship and the European promoter of the Buffett Cup.
