How do you feel about being the team coach of Badminton Society?
There is an exciting 3 years ahead of us. I feel there’s a lot of work that needs to be done. My job includes setting up a competitive structured society to fulfil members’ needs. They include the element of coaching and developing the juniors as well as the seniors.
What do you see society development in the next five years?
I feel excited for the junior development programme in the next 5 years due to the potential of the current junior national players who like to train with us at the Club. I feel there is a pathway within badminton through education and performance to achieve the highest levels in competitive play and also in education now badminton is within the English curriculum. The programmes that we do cater for all standards. I do think that badminton is a lifelong sport where any player or ability can come along and have some fun.
What do you love about the Club?
It is one of the most unique places I have ever been to or worked. I feel that the Club has been a part of sporting history within Hong Kong in all sports. The facilities including restaurants and the courts are all awesome places to play, train and work out. The environment is very family-friendly and children-friendly. The activity programmes in all the Club are outstanding and location is quite unbelievable which surpasses all my expectations here in Hong Kong and this is one of the highlights of my playing and working career.
