How did you get into the sport?
My parents played a lot and so always brought me along to the club when they were playing. I joined the tots program, playing 30 minutes a week and have been hooked since then.
What is your advice on balancing sport and academia?
Try to sandwich in training in between periods of academic study so your brain is refreshed during study time
How have you managed training during lockdown?
I started lockdown by finding any surface to hit a tennis ball against but then bought a tennis ball on an elastic string which was a lot of fun to play with on the road outside my house. With the monotony of quarantine, I didn’t want my fitness training to be repetitive as well so I mixed it up a lot with youtube workouts, skipping, cycling and running.
