Born and raised in Aberdeen, Tom Brewster’s parents were avid curlers and as a result introduced Brewster to the sport. At a young age, injury (a broken leg on two separate occasions) prevented Brewster from participating in contact sports. It was here that curling acted to satisfy his competitive needs, and he has never looked back since.
Brewster skipped the Scottish junior team to World gold in 1995. Brewster made his senior debut at the World Championships in 2003, where the team won bronze. He was skip of the team (rink) which won gold at the European Mixed Championships in 2006 and in 2009. Furthermore, Brewster was skip for the team that won a silver medal at the 2011 and 2012 World Championships and vice-skip of the rink that won the bronze at the 2013 World Champs in Canada after finishing in 1st place during the round robin.
Brewster is married and has two children; 1 boy and 1 girl. In his free time, he enjoys going to the cinema, watching sport (Brewster is a Liverpool FC supporter) and spending time with his family.
