The Passing Shot Tennis Podcast

About the Hosts



From his parents’ couch to Henman Hill, Joel has been following a furry little yellow ball for the best part of three decades. In January 2018, he became a ‘career fan slammer’ in Melbourne and considers his personal highlight to be watching Andy Murray win his first slam at the 2012 US Open. Beyond tennis, Joel holds an encyclopedic love for British indie music from his teenage years and can often be seen playing Scrabble, Boggle and pretty much every other word-based app game there is on his phone.



Avidly following the tennis circuit since 2006 when a young Mallorcan made her realise tennis existed beyond Wimbledon. Since then, Kim has attended tournaments across the globe and is a self-proclaimed Wimbledon Queue expert after years of setting up camp – something that Joel completely does not understand. Beyond tennis, Kim loves a good quiz and can always be found talking to Joel about the latest episode of University Challenge as well as flexing her bottomless knowledge of previous Eurovision Song Contest winners.
