"Having held the title of Durham County Badminton Singles Champion for 10 years and represented the County 1st team for over 10 years, 2 years ago, while in the USA l discovered the great sport of Pickleball, which resulted in me finally hanging up my rackets. In the USA l play in Grand Lake, Colorado with a membership mostly of 4.0 level, and in the U.K. at the Beacon of Light with Sunderland Pickleball Panthers and in Newcastle with the Tyneside Club.
I'd love to hear from you if you have any questions or ideas for the development of pickleball in the North East."
