Push2Podium is our exciting new wheelchair tennis Talent ID programme! If you’ve been inspired by the likes of Gordon Reid, Jordanne Whiley and Alfie Hewett and want to take up the game then get yourself along to a Push2Podium festival.
We’re looking for the stars of the future, but we also want to get more people playing wheelchair tennis at every level. If you have a physical impairment and are active then why not come along to one of our free festival and see where the sport could take you! You do not need to be a wheelchair user to take part and the programme is open to anyone no matter what your age, shape or ability.
