JP has also been the face and representative of the New South Wales Wallball scene, being head of directories for NSW and a member of the Game Development Committee.

Some of my favourites matches have been losses funnily enough!
2.5hour+ Open Doubles Final in Sydney 2011, partnering with Grantley Fraser, we lost 11-7 in the third, losing to Serg & Jim... still one of my favourite matches ever. Then afterwards, having to play an A singles final that finished 21-20... I lost, and omg my blisters!
2 fun facts about my experiences with Wallball include...
- I'm the only player ever to have played a pennant game for every club in South Australia.
- My first ever O'Connor cup game was for South Australia, I partnered with Rob Schreiner and we bet Jack & Glen Marsh which was huge upset and a game I remember well.
