Tennis Sussex has developed a new partnership with Brighton Bears Basketball Club where we will be delivering wheelchair tennis to a new audience. This will link into an existing successful session feeding players in from other targeted sessions with Brighton Rehab Centre (Brighton General Hospital).
This summer we piloted beach tennis for adults with learning disabilities in partnership with Beach Tennis UK in Brighton. 8 weeks of sessions took place with 10 regular participants which we hope to grow further in 2020.
I am pleased to report the following growth for Sussex Disability tennis doubling our participation numbers this year:
2018 monthly participation – 84, weekly – 69
2019 monthly participation – 174 (target 100), weekly – 131 (target 80).
