I took up squash about a year ago. I have been playing consistently at the Warwick HRI squash courts since. I recently set up a squash ladder to get more people interested in squash and encourage those who had not played recently. Click here to view the ladder.
I am fluent in French since living in France for 6 months as part of my undergraduate degree. I like to keep up my language skills by speaking French with native speakers as often as possible.
