Nominees to the Board of Directors
Brian McCormick – Treasurer
My name is Brian McCormick and I have been playing paddle since I was a kid. While growing up a tennis player I have fond memories of playing family paddle with my sister and parents in Rhode Island. My wife Kate and I moved to Rowayton in 2007 and that fall was happy to get involved in the Saturday morning league joining our division II team. I made many close friends on that team most of which are in my regular rotation of recreational games now. I think the team play is a great way to meet new people and forge memories. Rowayton paddle is one of my favorite things about our community. I am proud that our town has such nice facilities but recognize that there are a lot of volunteers needed to make it all happen.
Scott Johnson – Maintenance
My wife (Sarah) and I moved to Rowayton in 2003. After renting for 2 years we knew Rowayton would be the perfect place to settle and bought our first home in 2005. I started playing paddle in 2002 in a Darien town league. Being an avid squash player, I was instantly hooked on the dynamics and strategy of the game. In 2010 I joined the RPTA and my current mens FCPTL team. As a regular on the courts, arguably logging the most year round hours at 33 Rowayton Avenue, I have a deep appreciation for association and its facilities. With my wife, 10 year old and soon 6 year old twins playing the game, I look forward to maintaining the associations rich tradition while making improvements moving forward.
Meredith Bach – Website
My name is Meredith Bach and I have been a resident of Rowayton and member of the RPTA since 2012. I grew up in New Canaan and played paddle at the New Canaan Field Club.
I led the charge on the recent paddle fundraiser and realized that I could contribute in other ways going forward as a member of the board (thanks to Wendy’s coaxing).
Having been in the sports marketing business for over 20 years developed databases at American Express (to manage the 40+ sponsorship contracts), Polo Ralph Lauren (to manage all advertising, PR and sponsorship activities) and Tory Burch (design schedule and product management) I can be of assistance with membership signup and web site development and maybe combining the two for better ease of information.
I look forward to being part of the board during the 50th anniversary and promoting the game of paddle in our community.
Teri Vineyard – At Large/Social
My name is Teri Vineyard. I started playing paddle socially, shortly after moving to Rowayton 17 years ago. I have played in the Fairfield County Women’s Paddle League since 2008 and have been captain of my team for the last 5 years. I have also participated in the newly formed Paddle Player Spring League for the last 2 years and plan to continue to do so.
I love the game of paddle and would love to become more involved with the RPTA. Paddle seems to be experiencing explosive growth, especially among women. We are so fortunate to have the paddle resources that we do in Rowayton and I would love to become more involved with the RPTA board to continue this trend.
