LUCY SHUKER

Wheelchair Tennis

"I was first introduced to wheelchair tennis by Pete Norfolk, former World No.1 Quad Wheelchair Tennis player and London 2012 Paralympic Flag Bearer following a motorbike accident in 2001.

I absolutely love the game of tennis. I love the challenges it presents, the competition and the training. I am one of the most disabled women on the wheelchair tennis circuit and take great pride in working hard to stay at the top of the game. You have to have the will to improve as that is what the sport is all about playing with a dream of doing something better than you have done before.

I have achieved a career high ranking of World No. 5 in singles and World No. 3 in doubles. My career goals include to continue to strive towards winning a tennis Grand Slam and another Paralympic medal in Tokyo 2020. 

In the past 4 years, I am very proud to have achieved a second Paralympic Bronze medal at the Rio 2016 Paralympics.

As a female Paralympic athlete, I always champion female sporting successes and am passionate about raising the profile of disability sport and opportunities for those with disabilities and inspiring a new generation of female Paralympic stars through striving to achieve my own sporting goals."
