Louise Hunt made her Paralympic debut at London 2012, competing in the women's tennis Singles competition. Louise discovered disability sport at WheelPower's National Junior Games, and immediately found a love for wheelchair tennis.

 

“I was born with Spina Bifida and I was first introduced to wheelchair sport at Stoke Mandeville when I was just 5 years old.

 

It is hard to describe what an amazing place it is, and at such a young age, it gave me much more than just a chance to try out a variety of sports. It was here where I met many friends who I am still in contact with today, gave me confidence and ambition to believe in my abilities.  I found my love for Wheelchair Tennis and Wheelchair Racing at Stoke Mandeville and I competed in both of these for many years.

 

My ultimate dream came true last year when I represented Great Britain at Wheelchair Tennis for London 2012. Years of hard work, endless hours of training and travelling to compete finally paid off. It was truly the most incredible experience, a once in a lifetime achievement. I feel very proud and privileged that my first Paralympic Games were in London.”

 

In her career Louise has won 3 World Junior Masters titles, 3 Women’s World titles, plus to date, she has 34 international Doubles titles and 10 international women’s titles to her name.

 

Louise is currently ranked number 3 in Great Britain and 18 in the World. #RIO2016
