Wheelchair tennis development has a positive impact

7 November 2013

A report conducted on the International Tennis Federation (ITF) Wheelchair Tennis Development Fund (WTDF), by PHC members Anthony Papathomas, Emma Richardson and Vicky Tolfrey, has shown that participation in wheelchair tennis through the programme has a postive effect on the lives of the individuals involved.

The WTDF has been helping to grow wheelchair tennis in developing nations over the last ten years, with the aim of giving participants an active and rewarding life. The programme, run by the ITF in partnership with the Johan Cruyff Foundation, will have helped 39 nations by the end of 2013.
