Badminton Assistant here at the TBC and also work as a Sports Therapist at the NIHP clinic also based at the TBC. I joined the team in 2015. I have played badminton for over 10 years starting in the back garden and then to a local club based at Benfield.
I became a young coach at 16 helping at my local session at the Lakeside Centre. At University of Bedfordshire, I studied Sports Therapy and I ran the No Strings badminton session for 2 years and established a competitive team in the BUCS league by my final year, which I was club captain. In my final year I also gained my Level 2 coaching award.
Now back in the North East, I play for St Gabriels and assist and lead sessions based at the Tyneside Badminton Centre and elsewhere in the Newcastle and North Tyneside.
