Please let your customers know about our new store and I hope to see you there soon as I’m sure you will be impressed with the improvements. If they have any restings to pick up then please can they do this from the new store after the 24th. If need be we can post it back to them.
Jamie, our club recommended Physio has written a blog that may be of interest to some members about managing osteoarthritis. Please click here to link to his article.
As a Physiotherapist in professional football, I am regularly helping people to return to sport following an injury. Whether it’s a hamstring tear, or an arthritic knee, I have a passion for getting my clients pain free and feeling confident in their body again!
Alongside my full-time job in football, I hold a weekly private clinic where I regularly treat a variety of problems. Some of the most common injuries I see include lower back pain, knee & ankle pain, shoulder issues, tennis elbow, arthritic joints & tendon problems.
I believe everyone should have access to top-class
physiotherapy services. I apply the same principles that I use with professional footballers to all of my clients, ensuring you are receiving the best possible care. I combine hands on treatment with appropriate rehabilitation planning to get great results.
An initial consultation will allow me to assess and accurately diagnose your injury. From there, I will create a bespoke, achievable and long term rehabilitation plan to help you reach your goals. Follow up appointments will allow us to review and progress through your rehab.
I am returning to face to face consultations at The Natural Health Centre, Kings Norton from April 2021. Contact me for a free 10 minute phone consultation to see whether I can help you with an injury.

Congratulations from all at Weoley Hill to Cliff on his award, presented to him recently at the WALTA’s annual awards dinner.

Held on a sunny afternoon on the 2nd of September, the new mens singles final format was played out over a series of rounds. The eventual finalists were Kenny and Cesar, with Kenny taking the title with a hard fought 6-4 6-4 win. Thanks to everyone who played and enjoyed the event and top stamina marks to Kenny and Cesar who deserved to have a long lie down after such a competitive series of games.
In the runners up competition Mehmet won through and
it was great to see new faces playing and enjoying competing.
As with the ladies competition we will review the format for next year and hopefully continue to grow the numbers involved.
The ladies doubles competition was held on Sunday 2nd of September. In response to our membership survey, we were trying a new format this year and it was nice to attract a larger entry than last. So on a warm, but not to sunny, Sunday morning the American style competition was run.
There was some great tennis and a very close finish – so close in fact, that 5 ladies were sharing the lead in the second tier group, so it was decided to go with a simpler points total to decide the winners and Linda and Rosie prevailed!
Our thanks to all who took part and to Cliff and Adrian for helping to organise in the morning. We will continue to develop the format based on everyones feedback, but as a first go it was an enjoyable mornings tennis.
