Let's Talk Tennis brings together the coaches and community of Grantham Tennis Club & Gym, as well as the odd special guest, to discuss what's happening in the club, the sport we love and the world of fitness and well-being.
The GTC coach and wheelchair tennis player gives insight into the disability tennis programme at the club, talks about what the game of tennis means to him and answers a few not so quick-fire questions 😅.
Neil Rossiter, LTA Level 2 coach and wheelchair tennis player, joins us to speak about inclusivity, how the sport acts as a painkiller, the wheelchair tennis programme at GTC and next year's Paul Singleton Cup.
