Around 1920 two brothers, Tom and John Inglis, members of Drumchapel Lawn Tennis Club, decided that with the ever-growing enthusiasm for tennis in the West End of Glasgow, they would build a new club. A field of the Scotstoun Estate was in a good position on Crow Road. This was bought and four blaes courts were laid by Messrs Stutts of Paisley. A basic wooden clubhouse was built, and in 1922 Broomhill Lawn Tennis Club was formed.

The blaes courts needed careful maintenance by a groundsman who rolled the surface. Winter tennis was not possible. When the Clyde Tunnel was built, Balshagray Avenue had to be widened. The Club lost two courts and the remaining four were re-sited. An all-weather surface replaced the blaes, allowing tennis to be played throughout the year from 1968.

Socialising was always an important feature of the Club. The pavilion had been used as a nursery, for whist drives, concerts, and lively dances. Facilities were upgraded when, in 1972, a new clubhouse was built. Two squash courts were added at that time and the sport rapidly became popular.

During the 1970s and 1980s the tennis and squash teams competed at the highest level. From 1979 - 1993 the men’s team won the Scottish Cup fourteen out of the fifteen years. The ladies also won the Scottish Cup in 1983. Throughout the years, Thursday evening Social Tennis has remained busy and regular American Tournaments, mini-leagues and ladders have kept internal competition active. Our teams have always competed in West of Scotland leagues for both tennis and squash.

When the Covid pandemic hit in 2020, squash was prohibited but tennis was allowed. The Club worked within the regulations to ensure as much tennis was played as possible. Participation became a sporting and social lifeline for many, and many new members joined. 

 Club members were delighted to celebrate our Centenary in 2022; including History Day with a timeline of historical photos and an American Tournament with players dressed in whites. The clubhouse was refurbished with new bar furniture, the entrance hall  was upgraded and a Centenary Orchard planted. We celebrated 100 years of Tennis and 50 years of Squash.
