Ready: Racket Up - Joey Courchene

My name is Joey and I am 37 years old. I moved to Staffordshire in 2000 prior to attending university to study for a business degree. My passion for sport has been limited until somebody encouraged me to join the North Staffs Special Olympics. I have been an athlete with the Special Olympics for 2 years and I take part in athletics and badminton.
