A superb athlete and massively capable tennis player, easily better than Nadal or Federer.
Now back to the real world. We've lived in HK since 1998 and whilst I used to play a bit of tennis as a teenager I didn't get around to joining the club until probably 2005ish. David Anderson used to spot me playing with a friend and attempt to entice us into his playing circle. Eventually the pressure became too heavy to resist and I joined the Sunday afternoon crew, which soon became the Sunday morning crew and mixed into the club session (once the membership approach was changed to remove the Senior/Family distinction).
One day David sidled up to me on court and said “we need someone to handle the membership” and suddenly I was lumbered. The approach these days is to encourage family membership, involvement in the various playing sessions and to not turn anyone away. It’s a small village club of approximately 200 members and I hope that we can all enjoy some good tennis fun. I’d encourage all members to provide feedback on the website that we are trying to make more engaging.
Oh ... and now that Nadal’s knees are looking a bit iffy perhaps I’ll have a shot afterall :-)

The Andersons of Michaelmas arrived in HK around 1996 and I have been a member of HKLTC from that early date. However, I started paying in earnest in about 2001. In those first few years I played with a group of fellow Dads often on Sunday afternoons.
I first got involved with the committee with joint responsibility for the family membership at HKLTC at the same time I took over responsibility for administrating the Saturday morning junior coaching from the exceptional Derek Heath (a very tough act to follow). More recently I took on the role of Chairperson and my intent has been to make HKLTC a friendly and welcome club open to everyone but especially aimed at folk living in Horsted Keynes.
I try to play on Sunday morning club sessions although I confess I am a bit of a fair-weather wimp unlike some of the more hardy members out there.
I enjoy playing but despite the best efforts of Rob Jones our coach my playing skills remain mediocre at best. However, I am always up for a good chat on the courts (much to the more serious players’ annoyance).
