I started playing at EG&CC with my parents when I was 6 years old. I came through the junior system at the club and first represented the Men’s First Team at the age of 15. Was fortunate to be part of the team that won the Devon League and Cup double then and am looking forward to doing again once more this year!
I moved up to Bristol at the age of 18 to go to university and also play full time professional squash. Since completing my degree I have gone on to play in professional events around the world while also setting up my own coaching business in Bristol, where I have been now coaching for 7 years.
I’m really excited to be coming back to the club where my squash playing started. I’m looking forward to getting stuck into rebuilding both the Squash and Racketball sections and getting it buzzing once more as it was when I was last playing there.
