Help Thomas get his own wheels to play tennis!

Thank you to everyone who has donated. We have reached the goal and with the many fundraisers as well as our own savings we have placed an order for the wheelchair which we will receive mid February 2020, just in time for training for this years tournaments. We are so appreciative for the support and will leave this page open to anyone who feels they would still like to contribute, but also encourage you to support others who may need a wheelchair. They are such expensive pieces of equipment that are necessary to function daily, to move, to play sport, to reach dreams.

Thomas will never ask for anything, but I know how badly he wants to take his tennis career to the next level and play on world stage courts like Wimbledon, and to do that he needs his own tennis wheelchair custom fit to his body to improve speed, performance, movement and be able to practice at any time he needs.

Thomas has been in a wheelchair since he was 9 months old after suffering a spinal cord injury in a car accident, but living with SCI has never stopped him from accomplishing anything, from personal goals, to bucket list items and helping others.

He started playing tennis at the age of 5 years old and later went on to play for his country as a junior before taking a 10 year break to focus on his education and career. His tennis wheelchair from his junior days was donated to another player who needed a wheelchair early 2019.

He started group coaching and playing in tournaments such as the British Open and Welsh Championships in 2017-current and wants to progress further and take on individual private coaching and compete in international tournaments, but in order to do that he needs his own tennis wheelchair.

At the moment he borrows a standard tennis wheelchair from the ITF for group coaching and tournaments but in order to practice and play professionally, he would need a custom fit Tennis Wheelchair, the RGK Grand Slam!

If you would like to see this future wheelchair tennis champ on centre court, please donate towards his tennis wheelchair, if you are a company you are more than welcome to donate in exchange for your logo on his chair!
