Meet Our Writers

Hi! My name’s Scott Barclay and I’m a university graduate and journalist but you’re probably more interested in my history as a tennis fan. You want to know if the person writing these articles is a trustworthy source! Well, I’ve been a fan of the sport since I was 11 years old and I’m 27 now.

That makes me feel both very old and also like I should probably be better at playing than I actually am! In any case, I quickly fell in love with tennis and have played and watched ever since. My favourite player is Andy Murray (Scottish hero!) and I actually got the opportunity to talk to the man himself last year over an internet livestream he was doing. Dreams really do come true! In any case, I’ve been through a plethora of rackets and equipment in my time as a player, some of far better quality than others.

You can trust me when I say something is not great or if it’s brilliantly fantastic, I promise. But if you think I’ve got something wrong, you can always send me a tweet or email telling me so! I welcome discussion on any topics I cover!
