Louise made her Paralympic debut at London 2012, competing in the women's singles competition, and is now set to compete at her first away Games at Rio 2016.
Aged five, Louise took to the court for the first time, enjoying wheelchair tennis for the competitiveness of the sport and the social benefits that it provides.
She has been involved in elite competition for 12 years and now trains at Wootton Bassett Tennis Club.
Louise has won a number of silver and bronze medals as part of Great Britain’s team at the World Team Cup and this year she makes her second successive appearance at Wimbledon, having made her Grand Slam debut in the women’s doubles at SW19 in 2015. In 2015 she also secured her first career singles wins against world top ten ranked opposition. She recently reached her first ITF 1 Series singles final at the 2016 Korea Open.
In addition to wheelchair tennis, Louise enjoys swimming and handcycling. She has also demonstrated her athleticism by competing in wheelchair racing, having competed in 10 London mini wheelchair marathons, winning on seven occasions.
In addition to her sporting commitments, Louise has a Degree in Sports Science and Performance from the University of Bath. In the future, she hopes to work in the development of disability sport and she is currently an athlete mentor for Youth Sport Trust and Tennis Foundation initiatives.
Louise was born with spina bifida.
