|Tennis team - c1957. I am 3rd from the left and was captain. I played doubles with the girl to the left and spent a lot of time with her - and I have no idea where she went after we left school.|
|Hockey team - c1957. I am 2nd from the right holding a stick. I played in goal and was vice-captain.|
I also played badminton in the winter and in summer I went to the tennis club most nights so it is hardly surprising that I did not do a lot of homework; I even played in a tournament during A Levels - a different world.
I still sort-of do sport, having discovered dinghy racing in the 1980s - and I have been a frequent user of various sailing clubs - in St Andrews, Tynemouth and now the Deben.I often go to the sailing club now - but not to the detriment of doing my homework! How strange and similar - I suppose going to the gym four times a week is part of a similar desire to be active, although it is not competative.
