I was born and raised in Exeter and lived with my parents Mike and Pat till I was 18. I have three brothers Glenn, Tony and Peter. I also have 5 nephews all whom follow my badminton success. Bradley, Matthew, Henry, Benjamin and Samuel.
After my accident I went back to Clyst Vale College and completed my A-Levels, then joined Exeter College and completed a foundation degree in Coaching and Fitness in which I graduated with a Merit.
On the 12th October 2013 I married my Wife Becky at Crediton Church. We had such a big wedding of over 130 guests to the wedding service and 260 in the evening. We have so many Friends and Family that have supported us both through our lives that a big wedding was always on the cards. We had our Wedding Reception at Padbrook Park in Cullompton then jetted off on our Honeymoon two days later to America. It was such a wonderful day.
Becky and I now live in a bungalow in Broadclyst with my assistance dog Tessie through a Charity Canine Partners. Tessie is an amazing addition to my family, she helps me with day to day tasks, companionship and just a general joy to have around. Tessie went through intensive training to become an assistance dog and I feel very privileged to have her as my Canine Partner.
In August 2017 our Darling Daughter Imogen Alice was born. She is truly amazing. Such a smiley happy baby.
