Jim Mason lives in Loughborough, where he has been a member of the Leicestershire county bridge first team for almost 40 years. He is a past chairman of the County Bridge Association and his proudest moments at the table include representing Great Britain at junior international level and winning the prestigious Gold Cup teams competition.
These days, Jim plays competitive bridge less frequently, although he still runs occasional classes for beginners and improvers. As a member of the Bernard Magee Bridge team, he enjoys helping and hosting on cruises and at BMB events up and down the country.
Away from the card table, Jim enjoys watching a variety of sports, running a Fantasy Football League and taking part in pub quizzes.
