cinch Championships 2024: Wheelchair and Learning Disability Exhibitions set to shine spotlight on disability tennis

• 2 MINUTE READ

Jamie Murray’s appointment as Tournament Director isn’t the sole addition to the Queen’s Club this year as the cinch Championships is to host multiple exhibition tournaments to showcase different forms of the sport and it’s British and international stars.

With a particular focus on wheelchair and learning disability (LD), the exhibitions will run side-by-side during the peak of the grass court season, between Friday 21 June and Sunday 23 June.

About the cinch Championships Learning Disability and Wheelchair Exhibitions 2024

Over a half-century, tennis began to evolve and branch out to cater to the needs of disabled people, leading to the development of the varying formats we’re so familiar with today, including wheelchair, learning disability, deaf and visually impaired tennis.

Fast forward to today and major worldwide tennis tournaments look to profile and expand the reach of these formats, among them the Australian Open, BNP Paribas Open, the cinch Championships and many more on the wheelchair side.

This year, The Queen’s Club will be showcasing the world’s leading wheelchair and LD stars, with a combined six GB players to be contesting.

The cinch Championships Learning Disability Exhibition will take place from Friday 21 June to Sunday 23 June 2024, while the Wheelchair Exhibition is scheduled to run over a two-day period, on Saturday 22 June and Sunday 23 June 2024.

As momentum towards Wimbledon builds, Alfie Hewett and Gordon Reid will kick-off their grass court return at the Queen’s Club, going head-to-head with Belgium’s Joachim Gerard and the Netherland’s Tom Egberink.

Hewett and Reid, who recently won their fifth consecutive Roland Garros doubles title, have welcomed success aplenty over the course of their professional careers, winning an impressive 112 singles and 185 doubles titles between them.

The long-standing partnership has accumulated several grass titles over the years, lifting a total of seven doubles trophies since winning The Championships in 2016.

In the GB camp, Anna McBride, Fabrice Higgins, Dominic Iannotti and Oliver Beadle are set to take centre stage on Court 5, alongside Australia’s top-ranked LD players, Archie Graham and Mitchell James.

McBride, 20, has become fast acquainted with the thrill of contesting at a major tournament, having secured four titles at the Australian Open’s PWII Championships since its inception in 2023.

As a result, the Briton capped off a historic week in Melbourne by reinforcing her world No.1 spot in the VIRTUS World Rankings for players with intellectual impairments.

Meanwhile, GB National, Beadle, will return to the courts with a vengeance after being pipped to the title by the world No.1, Archie Graham, in the Australian Open PWII men’s singles in January.

He will be accompanied by former triple World Champion, Higgins, and former world No.1 and quadruple World Champion, Iannotti.
