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.
