I have been a lawyer for the last 28 years, 20 of those years have been spent running my own practice at Addington law. I started playing badminton at about 15 or 16 years of age. I have played A grade off and on since 1985 and at 52 I am still pretending I can play at that level. I played for various Canterbury div teams from 1984 until I was put out to pasture in my mid-forties. I still have a passion for the game although my body may not.
Hi, I’m Christchurch born and bred and have been involved with Badminton Canterbury since 2009. I have three daughters in their late teens and early twenties who have been playing since badminton since they were at primary school. My focus is on helping to develop and grow junior badminton in our region and I believe we are making great progress and with the recent appointment of our new professional coach from Scotland, we are looking at very exciting times ahead. Badminton is a great sport for children of all ages and abilities and has a wonderful social aspect that involves parents and families. When I’m not wearing my hat at Canterbury Junior Convenor, I run my own commercial flooring business.
