Glenn RichardsonGlenn Richardson helped the Saskatoon Merchants win the Western Canada men's softball championship in 1948. He has been a three-time provincial men's curling finalist. He has shot three holes-in-one in golf. And he's been active in varying years in hockey, football, baseball, track and field, basketball, tennis, soccer, badminton and bowling.

He was a player, coach and manager with the Merchants when they reached the Western Canada final in 1947 and, then a year later, they won the West won the West, beating Vancouver Narrows three straight.

He skipped Saskatoon rinks to victory in the first and fourth of the famous Hub City Bondspiels; lost once in a Nipawin car bonspiel final to Howard Wood of Winnipeg; and lost in three provincial finals, twice to the Campbells of Avonlea and one to the Richardsons of Regina.

His three aces in golf led to long time activity that included stints as president of the Saskatoon Riverside Club and the Saskatchewan golf Association.

He played on a Saskatoon Wesleys junior hockey team, which folded early in the 1938 season, and he went to Brandon to become a star defenceman. Service in the Royal Canadian navy interrupted what might have been a National Hockey League career and he later returned to Saskatoon to play senior hockey.

In football, he played for the Saskatoon Collegians, who were provincial finalists in 1936.
