Most would say my movement...HAHA! Just kidding! I would say I love to return serve.

My fondest memory (which I have told many times) is playing at North Park,,, the park is empty and quiet, light snow is falling down on us and the Church bells are ringing.
What do you enjoy when you’re not playing paddle?
Being with my family, whether it's playing a sport with them or playing board games and poker!
Do you have any pre-match rituals?
None-maybe I should get some!
What advice would you give to beginners?
Above all, have fun! It's just paddle! Learn the screens and how to lob! And, of course, be patient!
