Gordon was a keen tennis player

Eleven-times Grand Slam champion, Scottish wheelchair tennis player Gordon Reid just made it all the way to the finals of the French Open last week where he finally lost to the world number two, Argentinan Gustavo Fernandez,6-1, 6-3.

As a youngster, Gordon was a keen tennis player and when a rare neurological condition left him in a wheelchair in his early teens, he continued to enjoy the sport of wheelchair tennis. In the 2016 Paralympic Games, he became the first Brit to win a Paralympic men’s singles gold, and in the same year, he took two grand slam singles titles.

Currently ranked eighth in the world

This amazing left-handed player is currently ranked eighth in the world and in the 2016 games he also took a silver in the doubles playing with Alfie Hewett. The pair have won three consecutive wheelchair doubles gold medals in Wimbledon and they have their sights set on a fourth triumph at this year’s Wimbledon.

Wheelchair tennis is tough, and like all sports, it requires determination and dedication to get to the top. You will also require a specialized wheelchair, and at Invictus Active we offer three different wheelchairs specially designed to play tennis. They are super-lightweight, manoeuvrable, and have excellent stability.
