CHAIRMAN - David Johnson
David first joined the Club as a Squash member in 1973 on moving to Wimbledon after four years in Stockholm where he, variously, learned to speak Swedish, married Charlotta, sailed in the Stockholm archipelago and helped his club win the Swedish National Club Squash Championship.
For the next three years he played first team Surrey Cup squash in the 1st Division, before leaving the country again in 1976 for four years in each of Gothenburg, Brussels and Paris. Returning and rejoining the Club in 1988, he continued to play 1st team squash, although by then in a lower division, followed in time by lower teams, Veterans and Vintage.
Deciding it was time to put something back into sport after having been a member of tennis and squash clubs since teenage years, he was active in running the squash section for several years and assisted with the New Clubhouse project.
Agreeing to become an independent member representative on the General Committee, he became Chariman in 2006.
Still seen weekly on a squash court, he has been known to move around in a fashion to which he refers, misquoting Star Trek, as: it's squash, Jim, but not as we know it.
HONORARY SECRETARY - Richard Holliday
I have been a member of The Wimbledon Club Hockey section since 1969, enjoying my time both on and off the pitch, playing for the first XI, as well as captaining and coaching teams. I have recently taken an active role within the club management as Honorary Secretary and sit on the Management and General Committees. I am passionate about the club and support the hockey teams most weekends. We are hugely fortunate to have such wonderful facilities and I am looking forward being involved in helping the club grow and go from strength to strength. I take a keen interest in drama, music and singing and have been known to take to the stage on a number of occasions.
TREASURER - Roger Martin
I joined the Wimbledon Squash and Badminton Club when Gillie and I moved to Wimbledon 40 years ago. Playing squash away at The Wimbledon Club, I was so taken by the club; its people, the ambience and the whole setting, that I applied to join on the spot. Foolishly the club admitted me and I spent many happy years representing The Club on the court and in the bar.
I had very little to do with the operations of the Club, but when, I retired from the partnership in PwC in 2000 I accepted the role I still do: Honorary Treasurer. The Club has moved forward considerably during this period and I have enjoyed being part of it.
‘Retired’ life outside the Club has included non executive directorships in the businesses of international banking, pharmaceuticals, communications, investments and education. Let me not forget my favourite charities: Youthnet and Families of the Fallen.
The family of 2 children and 2 grandsons still keeps us busy, as does opera, bridge, tennis, bad golf and seeking warmer climes in winter.
CLUB DIRECTOR - Clare Wood
I started working at TWC as the Club Director in February 2013, having spent the previous 2 years working for London 2012 delivering the Olympic Tennis and Paralympic Wheelchair Tennis events.
I played professional tennis for 10 years and was ranked number 1 in Great Britain in the 1990’s.
I really enjoy the friendly & relaxed atmosphere at the club and meeting so many interesting members from across all the sections. I live locally and support the club teams in matches whenever I can. I am always happy to receive feedback, comments and suggestions about the club from members. I am continually striving to make this already great club even better!
