Why did you join the RBSRA Committee?

To support the development of squash in Berkshire and try and get more juniors experiencing the sport.

Where and when did you start playing squash?

I started playing in 2009, at Burghfield Squash Club, and was coached by my Dad along with three friends.

Who was your biggest influencer in the game?

My Dad and brother are my biggest influencers, as they have kept helping me and playing against me from the time I started.

What was your most important squash development?

Starting to play team squash at Burghfield, which lead to more opportunities to play against players of a higher level.

What was your most significant squash event?

I played a graded tournament at Winchester Racquets Club, and loved playing in the C grade and learned a great deal from all the matches.

What is your proudest squash moments?

Beating my dad for the first time! 

What other squash successes have you had?

Coaching juniors at Burghfield with Mick, Simon and Timo has been brilliant. We started from 2 children and now have over 15 turning up on a regular basis each Sunday. Three of those juniors have now joined the adult leagues and we all really enjoy the sessions there.
