How did you get into padel?
I learnt to play tennis from a young age , about 4.5 years ago I was playing in a tennis coaching group and the coach asked me if I'd played padel before.
I replied no, to that he said perfect you'll do...I was handed a padel racket and asked to fill in for a league match. From there I fell in love with the sport and gave up tennis to keep playing.

How often do you train/play?
I moved to Spain last year which has really helped, as before I wasn't really training or playing. Currently I have 3 private lessons a week , 1 group lesson and play a couple of times. I try to also do one or two gym sessions a week where possible although it's not always easy to fit them in.

What has been your biggest achievement so far?
I have been really lucky to compete at 2 European Championships so far as part of Team Ireland .... and hopefully there are lots more to come.

Your favourite player?
There are lots of greats but I love the way Martin Di Nenno has overcome the obstacles that he's faced.

Favourite racket?
Dropshot Legend 2.0

Favourite location to play?
Veneto Padel Cup , Treviso

Why did you sign with Drop Shot?
I wanted to collaborate with a brand who would look after their players interests but that also had great kit. Dropshot have an amazing range of rackets, clothes , shoes and accessories, so when Toby reached out it was an easy choice to make.

What are your top tips for people looking to get into padel?
Enjoy it , if you always leave court smiling you can never really lose. (My competitive side doesn't really agree😅)

If you could live anywhere, where would it be?

If you had to become an inanimate object for a year what object would you choose?
A camera , this way you still get to see the world.

If you had a parrot what would you teach it to say?
I would try and teach it a lot but definitely "Just keep swimming"
