Want to feel inspired …
Meet junior member Sam – he has just won Silver in singles and doubles at the Midlands Regional Disability Tennis Tournament as part of the York Disability Tennis Network. Sam is just 9 years old and the youngest player they have had.
TSC means Sam has brain tumours, polycystic kidney disease, epilepsy, severe learning delay so he does well to keep on smiling and loving his tennis.
The sun shone at our first Open Day on 1 May.
More events to look forward to …..
