Notts is playing a key role in the growth of disability tennis

Wednesday, December 13, 2017

Nottingham is the established home of the British Open Wheelchair Tennis Championships, while Nottingham Tennis Centre also hosted the Tennis Foundation’s inspirational Learning Disability National Championships this year.


In that event, Alex Hopkinson made it three wins form three matches to finish on top of the podium in the men’s Division 11 singles and ensure a local Nottinghamshire gold medal.

Hopkinson claimed his second gold medal of the weekend in the Division 2 mixed doubles when he and Frances Smiley dropped just one game across their two matches together.

Hopkinson and fellow Nottinghamshire player Katherine Ashcroft were also presented with the Fair Play Award.
