Companies including Cisco, Roche, BAE and IFS have signed up to team build Sport’s Wheelchairs for grassroots tennis clubs across the country.
Chris Sawyer, fundraising manager at The Tennis Foundation said;
“The wheelchairs will provide the chance for more people with a physical disability to play tennis at venues across the UK. More and more people are wanting to try wheelchair tennis and demand for chairs is increasing. The provision of chairs will help the Tennis Foundation, Britain’s leading tennis charity, to increase the opportunities for disabled people to play tennis in the UK.”

While Wheelchair Doubles will be celebrating its 11th year anniversary this year, Wheelchair Singles will only be celebrating its 1st year anniversary.
Let’s fill the wheelchair tennis pipeline with up and coming wheelchair tennis players, by providing more and more chairs, allowing for more and more people to access the sport, with the expert help of The Tennis Foundation.
