One (or two) things not many people know about me: In my teens and 20s I was a professional karting racing driver in the British Championship. I then nearly got signed for British Aston Martin GT3 racing team, however in 2011 I was involved in a life changing motorbike accident which ended my journey to becoming a professional racing driver. Motorsport is still very close to my heart and remains a main hobby of mine.
"During my recovery days from a motorbike accident (spent many months in bed and physio) for the first time I watched every game of Wimbledon 2011 tournament (won by Djokovic). Back then all I wanted was to get back on my feet and play sports again so I set myself a challenge to one day start playing tennis. Here I'm in 2018 moving to the KBS village and finding out about KBS Tennis Club. In the summer of 2019 I have booked a "rusty racket" session and got introduced to the club. Since then I've been playing as much as I can on Thursday and Sunday sessions and watching many YouTube videos to improve my tennis. I've also joined the Men's C Team and the Committee to keep me engaged as much as I can. My next step is to start having some lessons and keep playing tennis at every opportunity I have. Tennis is a great sport to keep my competitive side upbeat but also socialise within a club with everyone being so welcome."
