Amusing Sporting EpisodeFar too many to remember, the only one that springs to mind was playing netball when I managed to get the catch the ball on my back and couldn't work out why it wouldn't come of my back by me spinning round, at the time I didn't have the insight to just stand up!
Sporting InjuriesOnly ever broken my finger when playing netball, but only because I tried to use it as a football and fell over it!

Sporting RelativesMy grandfather, Joe Avery owned a 1912 Bermudan Sloop called ‘Dione’, which he successfully raced in the 1950’s and 1960’s in many RORC and EAORA races. He was honoured to skipper the Duke of Edinburgh’s yacht ‘Bloodhound’ on one occasion in 1966, winning the Southsea to Harwich race and earning a letter of congratulation from Buckingham Palace.
