Tennis Foundation Statement: UK Sport funding announcement


We are disappointed that UK Sport has taken the decision not to provide full funding for the Tennis Foundation’s wheelchair tennis world class programme over the Tokyo 2020 cycle. 

However, we are pleased that they have agreed to continue the Athlete Performance Awards for our players, which in total accounts for around a quarter of our world class programme costs.

However, the decision by UK Sport to remove our core programme funding that we use to provide central support to the country’s best wheelchair tennis players clearly puts at risk our ability to continue the progress that was made in Rio, where our athletes won six medals (more than any other nation), including Gordon Reid’s memorable gold medal in the men’s singles event – success that has helped to inspire a record number of people to pick up a racket and play wheelchair tennis across our network of venues.

We will now take time to consider our position and the options available to us.
