JORDANNE WHILEY

Wheelchair Tennis

This is Jordanne’s story:

"At the age of three my dad took me out to a tennis tournament in Israel he was competing at, during the tournament he gave me a little tennis racket and started throwing balls for me to hit. He quickly realised I was pretty good at hitting the ball so when we returned home I began having coaching lessons. I was talented spotted at the age of 11 by the tennis foundation and have climbed the junior and then senior rankings throughout the years.


Wheelchair tennis has completely changed my life, I used to be shy and skinny as a child and I started to get healthier and bulkier as I grew up. I also met new people who have disabilities so I felt comfortable around them, it brought me out of my shell and gave me so much self-belief and confidence.

to win a Paralympic gold medal.. that’s always been my ultimate dream!"
