7th June 2016
Since I was 14. I won an inter schools medal and was hooked.
I joined in 1996 when my previous club Pudsey went into administration. The following year I was elected to Chairman of the club.
Being part of a team and keeping fit and active.
The opportunity to encourage others to better themselves – and the banter.
Backhand clear, backhand drop, cross court return of serve, to name but three.
No comparison. Club night is a good time to relax and practice.
Being part of the Great Farsley Celtic Gents team of the late 90s, winning four out of five Gents Division 1 titles.
The same as now. I have two very good partners.
Probably about 90 percent. I go on my training bike for five minutes a night and sprint to keep up my fitness level.
I am very competitive. I want to win most games, but you have to realise when the opposition is better.
Tough one – I think Dave and Lynda as they keep me in check during matches. They have a calming effect, almost laid-back!
‘Steamroller Blues’ by The King – does what it says on the label!
Elvis – he had it all for a short time.
I don’t have one.
I am Palf – I admire all of my game.
No tipping of the shuttle – after a couple of hits it usually slows down anyway.
A snowman in drag. It’ll be cool!
Walking, but it’s not really a sport. I used to take part in crown green bowling and squash.
Any pint that’s hand-pulled.
More women members – numbers have been in decline for a few years now.
I like the idea of go-carting, a bite to eat and a few pints – in that order.
Usually a couple of pints and a chat in the club house if it’s open.
