After years of playing squash to a high level, having coached at the prestigious Grasshopper Club Zurich in his early twenties, and winning the coveted Grasshopper Cup in 1980 (alongside other past winners including, Chris Dittmar, Jansher Khan, Gregory Gaultier and Amr Shabana.), Paul Hendry always had a passion to make his love for sport a business interest.
Despite Paul being offered the opportunity to live in Monaco and coach the National team in the mid-eighties, he decided to return to his UK roots to fulfil his business interests in developing a racket sports brand. During this time, Paul still maintained a high level of competitiveness, competing at County level in both Squash and Tennis. Playing at this level took its toll on his joints, and due to hip and knee discomfort he was unable to play competitive sport any longer. Unable to play sport led to a very low time in Paul’s life, with low self-esteem and loss of identity. At the age of 48, Paul had both his hips re-surfaced, which gave him a new lease of life and the opportunity to return to exercise.
Paul has channelled his energy into leading an active lifestyle and seeking out brands and products that fit with the ethos of improving your life, no matter what your age and condition. Whether it be support, function or simply looking good, whilst participating in sport or general everyday activities, Eurozone offers a handpicked selection of brands that compliment an active lifestyle. Paul has personally felt great benefit from all of the products and is a huge believer in their efficacy and benefits.
Today, Paul can be seen with his long term partner, walking their dogs, playing competitive tennis and even participating in Strength and Conditioning classes at his local gym. Now, at the age of 60, he’s fitter and stronger than most in the gym and his friends tease him that he’s always first on the dance floor and the last to leave.
A true believer in the brands Eurozone wants to share with you and sharing his passion for an active lifestyle.
