A founding member of The Players Club in November 2006, which was set up for the sole purpose of hosting sanctioned United Pulling Federation (UPF) events in the United Kingdom. His drive and unfailing focus helped set other clubs together in Germany, Belgium, Ireland and Scotland and UPF Sanctioned pulls throughout Europe including Sweden, Demark and France.
