|Broomhill was founded in 1922 as an offshoot from Drumchapel Lawn Tennis Club, when it was decided that a more local facility would be beneficial to the community. A combination of competitive sport and social enjoyment has always been a theme of the club. The Saturday night dances became so well known that the BBC even broadcast some in the mid 1950s.|
We have also been innovative. In 1956 we were amongst the first to install floodlighting and in 1973 the first in Scotland to have artificial all weather surfaces.
We had a particularly successful period from the late 1970s through to 1993, with the gents’ tennis team winning the Scottish Tennis Interclub Challenge Cup a record 14 times! The team captain was Ken Revie, Scotland’s most capped player with 44 caps.
Now, although the Club successfully competes in the West of Scotland Tennis and Squash leagues, there is a more relaxed attitude with an emphasis on taking part. Family participation is encouraged through junior coaching programmes and children’s Open Days. This balance between sporting achievement and fun is fundamental to the club’s future based in the local community.
