Description:
Pictured here is the Men’s Pairs championship trophy of the General Motors bridge league, which was awarded annually. Other trophies awarded included Ladies Pairs, Mixed Pairs, Open Pairs and Swiss Teams, all played at various venues. The Men’s Pairs club was established by the General Motors Recreation Council in approximately 1960. They played precision bridge regularly inside General Motors.

After the events of September 11, 2001, a decision was made to exclude non-General Motors employees from playing bridge inside General Motors and as a result of the decision the Men’s Pairs club ended.

The Men’s Pairs Championship trophy of the General Motors bridge league was last won by the bridge playing partners, Mark Martiner and World War II Royal Canadian Air Force Flight Engineer of 425 Alouette Squadron, W.J. Walker.
