Jean Thistleton

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.
