Wheelchair Tennis Initiative



The Wheelchair Initiative is the LTA’s Wheelchair Performance Pathways Team Talent Identification Programme aimed at attracting players with athletic potential to enter the Wheelchair Performance Pathway.

These one-day events are designed to provide transformative experiences for players and acknowledge the fundamental characteristics that are required for wheelchair tennis, including: chair skills, racket skills and competitiveness.

These will play a pivotal role in inspiring the next generation and early-stage development of aspiring wheelchair performance players and the success of wheelchair tennis in the long-term.

I attended a Wheelchair Initiative session in 2021 and was selected to be part of the Wheelchair Performance Pathway. Since then, I haven't looked back. I'm now on the National Age Group Programme and have won 3 National School Games medals, the Wheelchair Nationals and competed in my first ITF Junior tournament. All this has been achieved in under two years with the support of my coaches and the LTA. I've also made new friends, travelled overseas, and got to meet multiple grand slam winners. What more could I ask for. Playing tennis and being part of the Wheelchair Performance Pathway is an absolute blast. Anyone can give it a go.
