How did you get into padel?

I started playing in Feb this year through a friend from work that I play tennis with and now I’m hooked.


How often do you train/play?

I try to fit in playing as much as I can around work. I'm a doctor so it can be tricky sometimes, but I am taking some time out before starting specialty training which will give me more time to play.


What has been your biggest achievement so far?

I think just getting to the level I am in padel in such a short space of time. I am improving every time I play and the achievements will hopefully come.


Your favourite player?

Bea Gonzalez.


Favourite racket?

Slazenger Epic.


Favourite location to play?

Anywhere that is warm and sunny.


Why did you sign with Padel Corner?

I want to be an ambassador for the sport and encourage more females to play padel and be more active in general.


What are your top tips for people looking to get into padel?

Don’t hit it too hard, start playing off the walls straight away to get used to it and learn Spanish .


If you could live anywhere, where would it be?

On a migratory bird.


If you had to become an inanimate object for a year what object would you choose?

A feather on a migratory bird so I can see the world and be in summer all year.


If you had a parrot what would you teach it to say?

I would teach it to rap in French.
