Having been a member of Broomhill for many years from a kid to my early 20’s, I joined again 5 years ago.
I play both tennis and squash with varying degrees of success.
I am proud to be President of Broomhill and am keen to respond to members / potential members’ needs and so if there is anything that you wish to discuss then please don’t hesitate to get in touch
I joined the club in 2006. I served as House Convenor from 2007 to 2012. I then rejoined the committee in 2015, serving as Vice President. I took the role of President in February 2016.
I started playing tennis around 1999 and have reached the dizzy heights of mediocrity. I play for the Gents 3rd team, the Gents Vets 3rd team and the winter league team. I currently captain the Gents 3rd team and the Gents Vets 3rd team.
Having joined the club four years ago as a squash beginner, I have been getting more involved with the club over the past couple of years. After taking on the role of Secretary a couple of years ago, I have now moved to the role of Treasurer which is more in line with my skill set as I work in Finance. I am also a member of The Mighty Bouches band which plays at the club throughout the year, playing saxophone. I now play regularly on the ladies squash team which I thoroughly enjoy (even though I never win!)
I joined Broomhill tennis club in 2008 after only really starting to play tennis in my mid-thirties by going to social tennis at Scotstoun. I joined after going on a tennis holiday to Majorca and being told there that joining a tennis club would be a good idea. Turned out to be the best thing I ever did! I haven’t improved my tennis much but have made fantastic friends and even met my future husband (Ian) because of this place.
I’m play in the ladies 2nd team and am the captain of the Winter league team as well now being the Subscription secretary.
I have also managed to whip up enthusiasm for tennis holidays amongst other members and have been away every year on a tennis holiday with a gang from Broomhill to Greece, Majorca and Turkey so far. : )
