You probably know that it is over 60 years since Martin Luther King made his famous speech,” I have a dream”. This reminded me when I was about 16 and started playing Badminton at my local Youth Club. I loved the game and soon was playing for the team in the local leagues. Well, I had a dream; it was to be a Professional Badminton Player or Coach, working in a dedicated Badminton Club or Leisure Centre. None of these facilities existed then.
Over the years I had many jobs and moved around a bit, but always had this Dream. About 20 years ago I had an offer I could not resist (I had been Head Hunted), it was to become The Badminton Professional at The Wearside Health and Racquets Club in Sunderland. A few years later I was offered a position as Coach at the University of Sunderland and am pleased to say, I have moved on from the Racquets Club, but, I am still enjoying my time at the University. So it proves dreams, can come true.
What’s your dream?
