Jean Thistleton

Tennis Player

Jean started playing tennis a child. Jean’s many years of being a physiotherapist have allowed her to combine her love of sport with her career. It was not until she joined Bramhall Lane Lawn tennis club in 1991 that she really started to progress. She had regular coaching and encouragement from Russell Lawrence and was selected for the team. She continued to progress and climbed up the teams (4th – 3rd – 2nd – 1st). She now plays in the first division.

To back up her fitness for team tennis at BLLTC she is a member at David Lloyd Cheadle so she can play winter tennis in the warm, train in the gym and swim.

She is the Bramhall Lane Cheshire Shield Veteran’s captain and her team has won the shield several times under her leadership.

In 2017 Jean was invited to join the Over 50’s Cheshire County tennis squad. January 2018 bought another opportunity to attend trials for the team and Jean is hopeful that her performance last year along with her constant dedication to improving her fitness and skills will mean her place is secure.

Physiofit COVID-19 Update04 January 2021

We are pleased to announce that following guidance from the government, our clinics will remain open and we are still able to see patients face to face for “medical reasons” which include physiotherapy. We will continue to maintain strict protocols with physios wearing PPE and we ask that from now on all patients wear a medical grade mask (no cloth face coverings). These can be purchased from reception on arrival at a cost of £1. These decisions have been made with the safety of our staff, patients, and the wider community at the forefront of our minds.

Whether you have a new problem or need ongoing support for an existing condition, we are here to help you get back to what you love. If you are concerned about coming in to clinic but do not want to delay starting treatment, we continue to offer virtual consultations via phone or video if these are more appropriate.

We ask for your help by making sure that if you are not well or have had recent contact with someone with symptoms of COVID-19 you let us know before entering the clinic. 

We hope you and your families all stay safe and well and we look forward to welcoming you back to Physiofit
