I was born in Leeds but moved abroad at seven years old and grew up in Portugal. I have always been a sports fanatic and spent my childhood playing football, rugby, tennis and just about every sport in between. At thirteen I took a special interest in tennis, training almost every day and competing in regional and national competitions. While training I took my coaching qualifications and trained the competitive juniors at my local club.

 

At 17 the time came where I had to accept that I wasn’t going to be a pro athlete but wanted to remain as close as possible to the sports industry. I went on to complete a (BA) in Sports Business and Sports Law followed a MSc in Sports Business.

 

Once I finished my degree’s I headed home to Portugal, and nobody wanted to play tennis with me! My mates had discovered Padel, invited me to play and I instantly fell in love! Naturally, not wanting to go straight into an office job I travelled to Marbella to complete a Padel Coaching qualification. Since then, I have spent the last year living and coaching in before deciding to move back to my roots, leading me to Surge Padel!
