¨I am passionate about using sport to enhance ones abilities for a more productive and energetic lifestyle. Sport allows for each life player to see the full spectrum of the abilities of their body and mind and to bring them into harmonious play on court and off. It is important to bring into play all of our capabilities – strength, agility, co-ordination and confidence amongst others, so as to be able to make the most out of our experience, and have fun doing it all!¨
