Daniel was one of the first people to use the centre when it open in January 2013 and from that start he gradually made the transition from customer, to apprentice and now full-time employee. Daniel has completed a number of qualifications over the last 5 years, including:
- NVQ Level 2 in Recreation and Leisure
- Emergency First Aid
- Fire Marshall trained
- NVQ Level 2 in Food Hygiene
- Badminton England Level 1 coach
In addition Daniel has recently completed a sustained period of training in racket restringing, under the the watchful eye of Paul Kennedy from Electre rackets.
Daniel can turn his hand to most jobs within the centre, often working around the reception area. In addition he assists in coaching, organises the pay and play sessions and, when he gets time, plays for St Gabriels Badminton Club.
Daniel supports Newcastle United and also plays darts.
