BROOMHILL LAWN TENNIS & SQUASH CLUB
Around 1920 two brothers,
Tom and John Inglis, members of Drumchapel Lawn Tennis Club decided that as
there was an ever growing number of tennis enthusiasts in the West-end of
A field of the Scotstoun
Estate was in a good position on Crow road and was bought by them, and
thereafter four blaes courts were laid by Messrs Stutts of
The club was run as a going concern by Tom Inglis until his death in 1947. At that time the members approached Mrs Inglis with a view to buying the club and she generously offered it at a nominal price of £1,400. This amount was collected by the issue of 4% Term Loans from the members, and in 1948 the clubhouse and grounds – including Glasgow Corporation bus seats which provided the main seating – became the sole property of the members. At that time the Men’s 1st team was in Division 5 and the 2nd team in Division 11. There were two Ladies teams, with the 1st team in Division 3.
The courts by this time had increased to six in number with a membership of nearly two hundred and fifty. With a very go-ahead committee, dances, whist drives, and fetes made sure that the Loans were all paid back within three years.
During the 1950’s on every second Saturday – alternating with Woodend Tennis Club – the club organised regular dances, with most nights all 200 tickets being sold out. They became so popular that in 1955 the BBC broadcast the Saturday dances, with bands such as the George Henderson Quartet, and The Bunny Holliday Sextet. Also on certain Mondays, Jazz nights were held featuring famous bands such as the famous Clyde Valley Stompers. If the gents felt like a pint (ladies did not drink in these days!), then a quick trip to Tennents in Byres road slaked their thirst. They could not take too long, however, as the dances only lasted from 7.00 p.m. to 11.00 p.m. The code of dress for the fashion conscious male in the 1950’s was an Austin Reed suit, obligatory narrow cut trousers, with a slight cut at the ankle to fit over the Italian style pointed shoes. Halcyon days!
Trams were the preferred
mode of transport for those who could not afford a Morris Minor! There was a
considerable network of trams in the area, with Broomhill being served by a
No.17 red tram going from Anniesland to Cambuslang; a No. 21 green tram went
from Anniesland to Elderslie; and the No. 24 yellow tram travelled from
Anniesland, via Broomhill Cross and
A forgotten tradition, long since ceased, for worn out tennis players was the cup of tea and the ‘jammy piece’. During the 1950’s and into the 1960’s committee members took it in turns in the evening to supply any member when they came off court with a cup of tea and a jam sandwich – all for the princely sum of two pence (one pence in our current decimal money)!
A well known tennis playing member in the 1950’s was Arthur Shaw. Arthur featured in the well known radio programme The McFlannels, and played the part of Peter McFlannel. The programme was the most popular in its day, and was listened to as much as the popular soaps are viewed today on television.
In 1956 Broomhill introduced
the first full-scale floodlighting of
a tennis court in the West of Scotland. The lighting, which was a copy of a
scheme built by a
An amusing story is
remembered of the eccentric
By 1963 the first threats of a Compulsory Purchase Order for the approach roads of the Clyde Road Tunnel were looming. Thereafter it was confirmed that the Club would lose a substantial piece of ground, resulting in the loss of two match courts, and the re-siting of the remaining four.This gave the Club a chance to think about upgrading the facilities. In the winter of 1965 when the Club was on its annual week-end tennis outing at the Largs Recreation Centre the members played some matches on the new En-Tout-Cas Tennis-Quik courts. It was decided then, what was good enough for the National Sporting Centre, must certainly be good enough for Broomhill.(The ‘older members’ of the Club who remember these annual outings have suggested that there are sufficient stories of the activities at these outings to compile a ‘social sequel’ in addition to the Club’s official history!) [See page 7 for more details]
The estimated cost for four courts, with two fully floodlit, was the then frightening figure of £8,800. After long and involved meetings with Glasgow Corporation, a settlement for the loss of the ground and the subsequent reinstatement was reached, and which together with a grant from the Scottish Education Department, and the Club’s own funds made up the sum required. In June 1967 at a General Meeting of the members the scheme was given unanimous approval.
In 1967 the men’s first team gained promotion to the top Division1 and won the Senior Calcutta Cup. The second men’s team also gained promotion to Division 3. The new courts were officially opened with an Invitation Floodlit Tournament in January 1968, which consisted of a couple from each of the teams in the men’s Division 1, with newly promoted Broomhill’s men’s team hosting the Tournament.
In 1969 the Club, headed by the then president, Ian Ross, initiated a project to build a new clubhouse. After a great deal of work and effort from the Management Committee, and also the Building Committee under the chairmanship of Jimmy Hunter, the Club raised funding of £7,000 from Scottish and Newcastle Brewers, £2,000 from the Lawn Tennis Association. Also with internal funds including fire damage settlement for the old clubhouse, the Committee found the necessary £17,000 required in order to build the new clubhouse and two squash courts. The Clubhouse was officially opened at the start of the 1973 tennis season with a Mixed Doubles Tournament and also an Invitation Squash Tournament. In his opening day speech, president Ian Kydd categorically denied having anything whatsoever to do with the fire which caused the old clubhouse to burn down, but admitted to being on the short list of some 311 suspects!
The Club continued to grow, with a new breed of talented young players now overtaking the ‘old guard’. Ken Revie, in 1974, became the first ever Scot to win the coveted British U18 Junior Title. He then went on to win the British U21 title in 1977.
Ken became the most capped Scottish Internationalist with 44 caps. Ken also played in every one of Broomhill’s record breaking Scottish Cup wins. The team won 14 times in 15 years between 1979 and 1993. The year that they did not win was because a ‘time out’ was called by their West Section opponents, when level at three rubbers each. Justice, however, was served to that team, who where defeated in the final! Over all these years, only 12 players were used in the 14 finals. The most honoured players were K.Revie (14), A.Galbraith (14), I.Allan (11), R.Caldwell (11), A. Lackie (11). The Ladies team also won the Scottish Cup in 1983, beating Elderslie 5/2. The team consisted of Judy Erskine/Judy Crammond, Laura Boyd/Maureen Hayworth, Mairi McCulloch/Rona Harvie.
There are many stories to be
told about the endeavours of the Mens’ team in their Scottish Cup campaigns.
One in particular has to be recorded for posterity. The year was 1980, and
having won the title for the first time in the previous year against
Another notable success
occurred in the 1980 En Tous Cas winter league when the Broomhill team, having
won the Scottish title, went on to win the British title. The team of Ronnie
Caldwell/Joyce Leach and Alan Lackie/Isobel Stadele, took on the best from
In 1984 Broomhill were named SLTA Club of the Year, while in the same year Ken Reevie took the accolade of Sportsman of the Year.
Team success continued but in terms of tennis league achievement, season 1994/95 was possibly the best, when the teams’ placing was as follows:-
Tennis - Mens 1st Team Premier Division
2nd Team 1st Division
3rd Team 2nd Division
4th Team 4th Division
- Ladies 1st Team Premier Division
2nd Team 4th Division
3rd Team 6th Division
- Juniors 5 Teams at different age groups
The Squash section was not to be outdone, and in their best season, 1996/97, the following was attained. [See pages 8 & 9 for separate Squash report]
Squash - Mens 4 Teams 1st Team in Premier Division
- Ladies 3 Teams 1st Team in Premier Division
- Juniors 4 Teams U12 won Scottish Team quaich
U14 won Scottish Team quaich
U16 undefeated in West of Scotland leagues
U19 undefeated in West of Scotland leagues
During 1996 the Club had a
windfall, following H.M. Customs and Excise legislation allowing retrospective
repayment of VAT on members’ subscriptions for prior years. This gave the Club
some £15,000. The then president, Stewart Walker, thereafter put forward
proposals to use this money towards totally revamping the Clubhouse and
Grounds. A Special General Meeting was convened at which the full plans were
given approval to proceed. The Club raised a further £15,000 loan from the Lawn
Tennis Association, which together with a £20,000 grant from the Sports Council
Lottery Fund, and the club’s own resources of some £20,000, meant that the
£70,000 necessary was raised to carry out the work. This included the relaying
of Astro turf on Courts 1 and 2, replacing Tennis fencing, creating a new Short
Tennis court, installing and extending double-glazed picture windows
overlooking the Tennis Courts, creating a new full-length Bar, re-positioning
and upgrading the Junior room, and providing new curtains, carpets and chairs.
It was at this time that the Club finally changed its address from
The refurbishment was completed in time to host Broomhill’s first Grand Prix Squash Tournament on March 1997. This was granted a Grade Two status, with International ranking points, and saw a high level of British professional squash players competing. The title and the £1,000 first prize, out of a prize fund of £5,000, was won by Irish Internationalist Derek Ryan.
In 1997 the Club celebrated its 75th Anniversary by holding a 1920’s style fancy dress Tennis Tournament and Barbecue, with all the competitors playing with the obligatory wooden racquet. The 'good old days' it was not, with most complaining of ‘tennis elbow’ by the end of the day!
Since the heyday of the Club in the mid 1990’s it has, together with others throughout Scotland, seen a general decline in membership – mainly caused by the opening of Sports and Fitness clubs, and other leisure activities being made available to both senior and junior members. The age of the members seems to be growing older, with significantly in 1999, one of the ‘more mature’ gentleman players, past President, Stewart Walker, becoming Broomhill’s first veteran Scottish Internationalist! One other mature member who has to be mentioned, who was still playing tennis and squash in 2002, was 80 year old Dave McGorum, well respected throughout the West of Scotland for his superb racquet stringing.
In 2002 the membership was as follows:-
Student, Intermediate & Junior 40
Social & OAP 29
The Club has now settled down to a more comfortable existence of three men’s and three ladies Tennis teams, and three Squash teams. The emphasis now being in ‘taking part’ rather than the winning of titles – a much less stressful environment for all concerned. The greatest stress now is the Gents’ tennis teams having to make their own tea! In the AGM minutes for 1981 it is noted that the tennis convenor thanked the ‘tea girls’ for organising the match teas - a tradition now merely a distant memory in the annals of the club.
In 1979, following the death of Stuart Kilpatrick, aged 79, the committee proposed that in honour of his service to the club, and so that his name should not be forgotten, a cup should be presented annually in his memory. The recipient would be that club member who had put in considerable effort and had served exceptionally well for the club during that particular year. The recipients were as follows.

RACOGGOB, although not known to the majority of Club members, has in fact been established since 1978.
At that time, some tennis players got together to form a ‘by invitation only’ club, for those members also interested in playing golf. The founder members were Ian McCulloch, Brian Millward, Russell Pickard, Pete Taylor, Dougie Whitelaw, John Robertson, Gavin Tait, Robert Whitesmith, and Neil Paterson.
Their first outing was at
Lochgreen, Troon, and since then the members have travelled the width and
There is a special constitution, together with rules to which members have to adhere. The code of dress at dinner is strictly Grey flannel trousers, blue Blazer, and the bespoke Club tie. (Even Willie McGregor has to forsake his trademark red trousers!)
The rules, as you can imagine, have been tailored to meet everyone’s requirements. After one particularly stressful effort to play out of a bunker, the Bob Whitesmith rule was introduced. This meant that in the event of any Gentleman player being unable to clear the bunker after four shots, he was allowed to throw his ball out – providing any ball thrown therefrom did not land in the hole.
A magnificent trophy, and a green ‘semmit’ with the logo on the front and Champion on the back, is awarded to the yearly winner. Winners of the RACOGGOB trophy are listed below.

The Inverclyde Weekends
These famous (or infamous!) week-ends took place for some 20 years, spread from the 1950’s, throughout the 1960’s, and into the 1970’s. They were ‘gentlemen only’ arrangements, purportedly to play tennis in the relaxing atmosphere of the Inverclyde National Sporting Centre at Largs. Arriving on a Friday night about 8.00 p.m., the tennis would soon start, and continue on the wooden indoor floor well into the early hours, sometimes until 3.00 a.m. The next day saw a quick lunch time pint at the Queens Hotel, perhaps a bet at the local bookies, some outdoor tennis in the afternoon, and onto The Moorings in the evening for some Saturday night dancing.
The normal attendance varied between 16 and 20 souls - souls being the operative word - as the bodies had been well and truly left behind long before their return to Broomhill. As well as tennis, also featured were the card schools and late night drinking sessions. It was a well known fact that Centre’s pot plants thrived on re-cycled diced carrots and McEwans export! However, some of the stories concerning the ‘goings-on’ do not merit publication in this family read History of Broomhill.
One such story (herein censored) centres around a certain Tennis champion, a certain Squash champion, and a certain Squash team member. Legend has it that following a night of imbibing the local brew, a comely wench was espied, and invited back to the ‘family manor house’ for supper. The chaps, being of a sporting nature, just so happened to have a pack of playing cards, and in order to maintain good relations with this friendly native, invited the aforementioned wench to a game……of strip poker! All did not go according to plan, however. Broomhill’s best were beaten. The likely lads ended up wearing just their trendy M.&S.designer cotton ‘Y’s’, while the comely wench had maintained her maiden’s honour, still clad in her becoming knee-length boots, mini-skirt, turtle neck ribbed sweater (tight fitting), and not a hair out of place of her immaculately coiffured bouffant hair-do.……So it is told.
Following the completion of the current Clubhouse and Squash courts in 1972, the squash section quickly became an important part of the Club’s activities. By 1978 the Gents first team was in Division 1 and the second team in Division 2, while the Ladies first team, unbeaten throughout the season, were runners-up in Division 1, with the second team in Division 2. The Ladies team won the Division 1 title for the first time in 1979 and progressed to win the Scottish 1st Division in 1985.
It was in 1978 that Joyce
Leach (16) won the West of Scotland U19 Championship – one of the first of her
many accolades. 1980 saw Joyce ranked No.1 at U19 in
In 1980 fellow team member
Nanette Mutrie was ranked No.1 in the West of Scotland, and No.5 in
It was in 1981, however, that saw the emergence of Broomhill’s best ever squash player, Alan Thomson. Alan started playing squash, aged 15, in 1975, and by 1981 he was ranked No.1 in the West of Scotland.
In 1985, Alan was
selected to play for, and captain, the Scottish Team at the World Championships
seemed to increase his endeavour, and in 1992 he captained
His experience awarded him the appointment as manager of the Scottish Squash team in 1996, 1997, and 1998.
In 2003, aged 43, he was still playing at the highest level, winning the club championship at Colets Squash Club in Surrey, which became the top English team by winning the National Club Championships.
Alan’s achievements are so numerous that they merit special mention, and accordingly have been listed separately on page 9.
Senior Scottish International caps won by Broomhill squash players were, Nanette Mutrie - 4 caps, Joyce Leach - 10 caps, and Alan Thomson - a staggering 75 caps. While at Veterans level Leslie Craigie gained 2 caps, Nanette Mutrie 27 caps and Alan Thomson 17 caps - making this an astounding 96 caps in total!
During the heyday of Squash in the 1990’s Broomhill had four Mens’ teams, three Ladies’ teams and four Junior teams. Then, court time was at a premium, and it was absolute sacrosanct that no booking was made on any evening before 7.30 p.m. for the next week’s courts. By 2002 however – in common with most other clubs – squash had become less popular, by which time the club had two Mens’ teams and one Ladies’ teams.
