Ashok took up golf at 50 - the first sport in his life. Having attained a handicap of 9.7, he spent hours trying to get to single figure. That dream that never materialised and he took a break from golf.
Ashok then turned to running. He completed several half marathons and ran the London Marathon, raising over £10,000 for street children. But running didn’t agree with his knees, so he moved on.
Next, he tried long distance walking and has completed several marathon walks including the Breast Cancer midnight walk in London raising substantial funds for a variety of projects. He still walks most weekends but over shorter distances.
Finally, he found cycling and completed the British Heart Foundation London to Brighton cycle ride and has been repeating it ever since including Palace to Palace.
These days, it’s golf (12 HC), cycling and walking that keep him fit, healthy and happy.
And it is these activities that Ashok, feels have given him the drive and determination, energy and enthusiasm to remain in practice for many, many years yet to come.
