When Bernadine Geary and her husband, Kevin, bought a run-down 20-year old-skating rink in September 2015, it took a huge labour of love to bring it back to life rebranded, repainted and revamped. SK8HOUSE, in its new glory, was born.

Bernadine only began skating a few years earlier, following her husband and two children who were competitors at national and international level.  Bernadine loves dancing and took her new sport to a higher level, joining Kevin at Masters pairs dancing.  Both have been a successful couple, winning nationals in 2017 and 2018 and competing at Oceania level.

Bernadine says she bought the rink for her family, but skating helps soothe her soul and is highly cathartic for relieving the moments of stress in her finance broking business.  “The rink is my happy place,” says Bernadine.  “I love entertaining people, and that is what the rink is all about — families having fun.”

For many years, Bernadine has been friends with Vanessa Hammond and her family.  Vanessa’s daughter, Brittany, is an international dance skater and coach at the rink and   Vanessa had been managing the rink on Saturdays. Bernadine recognised Vanessa’s managerial banking background and asked her to join the partnership in early 2017. 

“Vanessa has an extraordinary artistic flair, in particular for our themed nights at the rink,” Bernadine says.  “Our Halloween night has taken off and is becoming one of the calendar highlights on the Peninsula each year.”

With Bernadine and Vanessa sharing the same values of customer service and business ethos, the stars certainly aligned in this partnership and together the women are a force to be reckoned with. “We want SK8HOUSE to be a household name that people associate with good old-fashioned family fun that is great value for money.”
