First World Deaf Tennis Championships a major success

Jill Osleger, National Disability Development Manager, for the Tennis Foundation has been very pleased with the success of the tournament and the community involvement. She said to UK Deaf Sport This week:

“The first World Deaf Tennis Championships hosted by the Tennis Foundation and UK Deaf Sport has now been completed, it was a fantastic week for all concerned – players, spectators and everyone connected to the event. At the Come & Try activity on the last Saturday of the event, we were delighted to welcome over 45 participants and their families who came along, had fun and got involved! I believe a great time was had by all and we were delighted to have participants of a range of ages and abilities coming along to play tennis and support the GB team in their matches.
