I’ve been playing badminton for about 38 years!
I’ve been a member of Farsley Celtic for 11 years.
It’s really good fun and you get lots of exercise.
It’s good to play with a mix of people and standards. We have a very friendly set of people and it’s good fun, competitive and a laugh.
Oh that’s a tricky one, any shot that wins me the point really, but a nicely intercepted net shot winner always feels pretty good!
It can be more mentally challenging playing matches but I enjoy trying to win games and working with the rest of the team to do our best. Club night is more relaxed and fun and you get to play with everyone rather than sticking with one partner.
Think I peaked at 10-years-old when I was runner up in singles and doubles in a big competition in Nottingham!
I would like to still be playing ladies and mixed with hopefully a few improvements to my overall game.
A lot, I think. I also do other exercise but badminton club works your whole body and is good for mental as well as physical fitness.
Very. I want to win every game I play and want to play my best whether I win or lose.
Charles is a great inspiration and demonstrates that you can keep playing to a good standard and keep fit even after retirement.

Really??? Ha ha. Can’t remember!
Get rid of the net.
I don’t do fancy dress. Boring, sorry!
I occasionally play tennis, do circuit training, yoga and weight training.
Cider, a pint, please.
We have a good club, but we do need more women players as it can be hard to get a team together sometimes.
Pub crawl always sounds good to me – forget about food!
Couple of pints or a glass or two of wine.
