2019 Board Member, Dave Broderick

2017 Candidate Broderick Dave was introduced to platform tennis in high school by David Ohlmuller, but did not start playing until 10 years later when Sarah Kreiger got him out on the courts several times a week. He has been hooked ever since.

He is a member of the PPTA, where he served as a National Tester. For almost 20 years, he has been involved with the APTA Junior Nationals and for the past three he has been a co-chairman of the tournament. Together with his brother Drew and Patty Hogan, Dave founded High Energy Paddle, which offers weekly instruction to over 60 women who are looking to improve their game. He is also a board member of the New Jersey Men’s Platform Tennis Association, serving as the Treasurer and involved in running the 128-team League Classic. Dave enjoys working with Juniors and watching their development progress, as well as organizing and running platform tennis tournaments for all levels of play. 

Dave is the Head Racquets Professional at the Short Hills Club in New Jersey, where he has worked for the past 17 years. He is also a certified tennis and squash professional.

He lives in Bayonne, NJ, where he is currently the second-best platform tennis player, with his wife Liz and kids Marissa (who roots for Drew more than her father) and Edmund.
