14 Jun 2021 – Sean Becker skipped his team of Warren Dobson, Hamish Walker, Jayden Apuwai-Bishop and Rob McSkimming to the gold medal at the 2021 NZ Championships to win his 11th title.
However, he was pipped by his sister Bridget who led Natalie Thurlow, Holly Thompson, Jen Stewart and Ruby Kinney to a clean sweep of the Women's round robin as she recorded her 12th championship win.
With just three Women's teams entered, the sides played a double round-robin. Bridget Becker recorded a tight 7-6 extra-end win over Team Courtney Smith in their first meeting of the weekend, but had more comfortable margins in their remaining games to claim the gold with a clean sweep.
