27th July 2015
Since my dad took me to the local club back in Cumbria aged 13.
Four years I think!
Long exciting rallies when playing similar standard opponents.
The people, the banter and the competitive matches.
Smash – my only shot.
It’s certainly more serious. More pressure and a real desire to want to win every point. Encouragement among partners and team mates throughout the match, as opposed to banter on a club night.
Winning the Mixed B knockout trophy two years straight – and actually winning a game of badminton with Sam Hall
In the first Men’s Team – with the rest of the Men’s B.
A third. I play golf twice a week and go boot camp twice a week… I have a very poor metabolism.
Very. I want to win everything – but my partner is Sam Hall.
Hate to say this, but I am always impressed with some of the shots of my brother, Stephen. He reminds me of my idol, John Palfreeman.
Survivor – ‘Eye of the Tiger’.
Peter Kay – win or lose, there is always a joke to be made.
John Palfreeman – playing WITH him!
His only shot – the reverse backhand cross court with a slice.
I wouldn’t change the rules – I would invent the ever lasting perfect feather shuttle.
John Palfreeman (all I need is a cricket jumper and a knackered old knee brace).
I play golf every weekend at Calverley. Absolutely love it – when the sun is shining.
Lager. Lager. Bag of crisps. Lager. Maybe Guinness.
We desperately need more women members to help the ladies and mixed teams. Apart from that – I love this club!
Absolutely anything our legendary social secretary decides to do.
A cold lager in the club house next door to the courts.
