8372c2a29e23874cf8a93307db1cc096Name: Robyn Tierney

Nickname: I was always called by my surname growing up however, now I don’t have a nickname. Call me anything, just don’t call me down…

Describe yourself in 3 words: Hard-working. Fun. Talkative.

What do you do for the Club? I am the Principle Administrator for the Club. I oversee any of the off-court questions, do the boring stuff of the club and the important things like registering the squads and the players too.  I’ll help out anywhere I can – I’m pretty much the tea lady to this lot (hehehe)…

What is your most prized possession? My iPhone – its my second brain (well, my only one if you ask some people)

How did you first get involved in basketball? I played basketball in High School in PE

What do you do to relax off-court? Relax? Whats that mean?

Who is your favourite basketball team? NBA team – Toronto Raptors. BBL team – Glasgow Rocks

Who is your favourite basketball player of all time? There is only one right answer here, Michael Jordan

What is your ultimate ambition? For NL Titans (and Above the Rim Basketball) to be noticed nationally as thee biggest development and competitive club across the country

Where do you see yourself in 10 years’ time? Probably still standing at 5″3, anyway…. being involved in the club, at some capacity.

Do you have any pre-game rituals (as a coach or player)? I don’t play so, I’d say to motivate the players – if its a “lets do this!” speech or a “don’t be nervous – do your best!”

A phrase or saying that motivates you the most? “Leave it on the court” – as a coach, all I ask for is commitment

What is your most memorable basketball moment? Cheesily enough, probably watching the first ever Titans team take to the court. The amount of hard work and paperwork (heheh!) needing done to make that happen – it was a good moment.

Who would you like to be for one day? A taller version of me, would be helpful…

If you could invite any five people to dinner, who would they be? The Rock. Leo Messi. The late great, Paul Walker. My mum (cause she’ll want to see if I can cook). Kaley Cuoco.

And finally, what would you say to someone who is looking at joining the Club?

Come along and try it out for size. Basketball is a great sport to learn.

  1. Hi Robyn I am senior netball coach at the netball club that trains at St Andrew’s on a wednesday. We start at u11 and go through to adult squads.Our adult and league games have always played on a thursday,(at a central venue) but due to a change in league it’s looking like our games might change to a wednesday, if that is the case I will have to look to change or add to training nights, which as you know can be expensive. Anyway this is just a thought but would you consider swapping nights with us if that is the case, hope you know no pressure here and I realise like us training probably ties in with Games.

    1. Hi Ann, we train at St Andrews HS on a Tuesday – is this the night you are asking for? We couldn’t swap to a Wednesday or our boys would be training 2 nights in a row, unfortunately. I’d find it very difficult to move 3 teams trainings to another night especially as they have trained those nights since the beginning. Apologies I couldn’t be of more help.
