Louise, has never let her disability, Spina Bifida, define her. Despite spending her whole life in a wheelchair, she has been involved in sports since the age of five. Born and raised in Wiltshire, Louise was brought up by supportive parents, whose attitude of ‘just try it’, means she fully embraces life.
Championed by her parents, as a young girl, she participated in many different sports, before discovering Wheelchair Tennis on a trip to Stoke Mandeville. Louise also took part in Wheelchair Racing, and won seven out of 10 London Mini Marathons, an unofficial World Record. Recognising that tennis was her real passion, she began playing and competing in Wheelchair Tennis events, and in 2012 she competed in her first Paralympic Games in London. She also competed in the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games, qualifying at 10th in the world – her highest ranking.
