How old were you when you first played TT 11
How did you start & where Turned up to a session for a laugh at the
Birmingham Sports Centre. Met Jim Peakman – Legend!
Who have been your coaches Jim Peakman, David Goldstein, Neil Wheatley, plus more.

two weeks only at Tees Sports when I was 15.

What is your greatest TT success Beating Jun Tsuji three times in my last year as a junior.
Jun Tsuji was an ex-England no.1 as a junior, all be it for a short spell
What is your greatest TT disappointment Giving up at the tender age of
17 for 12 years and not being the player I could have become.
What players do you most admire
Locally Too many to mention. I will not give anyone a big
Nationally Tin Tin Ho, Liam Pitchford, Paul Drinkhall
Internationally Ma Long, Zhang Jike. I think Zhang Jike is unreal when
he is on form. Takes the ball ridiculously early at times. Great to
Waldner was the most effortless player that
has ever lived. Made incredibly difficult shots look simple! Genius!
What is your favourite;
Food/Drink Italian/Pina Colada
Film/Actor Man on Fire/Denzel Washington
Music/Song Too difficult to answer
Holiday Destination China with a few Monks will do, so that I canplay
table tennis at high speed and think i’m playing
