Bright Ideas for Tennis: Inclusion Exhibition

What a thrill! And a fabulous demonstration of inclusive sport in action!
Last Sunday I was invited to play in an exhibition of inclusive tennis. Organised by Danny Sapsford, co-founder and manager of the charity Bright Ideas for Tennis (and former GB Davis Cup player), and Mark Bullock, inclusive sports development advisor (and former member of the International Paralympic Committee Paralympic Games Committee!)
