Wheelchair tennis players Alfie Hewett & Gordon Reid inspire next generation at Wimbledon

Have you ever dreamt about playing on the prestigious courts at Wimbledon?

Well the competition ‘Play Your Way to Wimbledon’ is the UK’s largest individual mass participation tennis tournament allowing players to compete for glory at the All England Lawn Tennis Club.

This year for the first time, they’ve expanded the categories to include visually impaired, wheelchair and learning disability tennis.

Alfie Hewett and Gordon Reid, who’ve won 17 grand slam wheelchair doubles titles together were in attendance to inspire the next generation.

Well I had the chance to speak to the pair on the day about the tournament and the future of the sport.
